Did the 10k in 2019
Ok it was a blustery day but organisation and marshalling was not good. I know it's for charity but ridiculous things like dogs walking on course with owners and people just aimlessly wandering on the course made this actually dangerous with risk of injury to runners and local people. No proper marshalling - might as well have just turned up on day and invented course there and then. Sadly will not run these again until better organised.

Did the 10k in 2019
From the start there was conflicting start times on emails / internet. On the day there was no atmosphere. There was supposed to be a kids race but no evidence of it if children had come. It was advertised for runners to have a t shirt which there were none. It said you had a water bottle however, I think they meant a bottle of water at the end. When I finished the medal was given to me in a wrapper! Very disappointing all round.
