Did the race in 2019
Missed the whole thing as it was published on here as a 12pm start when in fact a 10am start. Thanks (Gave it 5 stars as not the fault of the organisers)

Did the race in 2018
The race is on narrow park paths, get yourself near the front at the start or youll be stuck in a bottle neck! Be prepared for lots of twists and turns, quite a technical course with a few lumps and bumps thrown in for good measure!

Decent run out, pb potential in this race. I used this as a fun run with my friends and would do it again only to get a quick time.

What type of running shoes to wear, road, off road or multi? As the half is not circular, please advise how we can get back to our car?

Hi there. Just to let you know that the course is circular so the start and finish are in the same place. The course is mixed terrain so if it has been wet then trail shoes would be preferable
