Truly one of the most wholesome 10kms out there with the most heart! I'm an avid aviation fan and a great supporter of the RAF museum - so there couldn't be a better venue! The organisation prior to the race, and on the race day is always stellar, parking/commuting is a breeze, and the course is challenging but flat enough to really push you for a PB. Thank you, thank you! I'll always be back.

Great event can spend rest of day visiting museum. 20% off food and merchandise. Free parking. Run underneath a plane to finish on the path of the old runway.

Did not enjoy the actual course at all. I did not expect to be running along the side of main roads. Great atmosphere and medal. Good organisation.

A nice course, but at times the paths were very narrow which meant it was difficult to get round - especially when the fast runners were overtaking on their second loop. There was also a bit of traffic to negotiate, and didn't help when one of the marshalls allowed the cars to keep moving when we were just about to cross the road! According to the website, my results don't exist which is a shame. Otherwise, it was enjoyable and a really nice atmosphere.
