    This sounds like fun, Is this for Running beginners - do some end up walking or is it a quick run? 😊

    Did the Mince Pie 5k in 2019

    Great fun, great route and brilliant atmosphere. Good communication from the organisers. One to add to the diary for next year.

    Really friendly atmosphere, however ensure you take a decent head Torch because from our turn-around point there were no marshalls and couldn't see a thing when no-one in front. Quite scary in places so a Marshall with a light would have been ideal rather than them all congregating in one area! No registration which could be open to abuse.
