This 10k run only cost £15 to join, but I have raised hundreds of pounds for charities. It was well organised. Parking was free and easy to find. Everyone was friendly. It was my first organised 10k, so at my age of 73 I was not exactly the first to finish (last equal!) but everyone was supportive and friendly. Well done.

Very bad organisation , no toilets, start delayed, no atmosphere at all ,very poor quality medal .not worth to pay penny.

Terrible organisation. No toilets open. Start delayed by nearly 40 minutes and a complete lack of atmosphere.
Did the 10k in 2019
This was a very disappointing race, I have ran a lot of 10k races and this was the worst one. Toilets were closed, the course was horrendous and there was no organisation. It was delayed for 45 minutes while they sorted out using a local cafe toilet (which the direct paid them for) it was basically a park run. I got attacked by a drunk man with a stick while I was running around. I will never run this race again.This was not worth 16 and I want my money back.

Very disappointed with this event.Catalogue of errors.No toilet facilities until Race Director had to pay a local cafe to use their one and only toilet, delayed start of 45/50 mins due to no toilet facilities that could be used at 10. (Race start time)Poor PA systemWould not recommend

First event like this Ive done. Thought the organisation wasnt great , no toilets then we were told we could use a cafe down the road. When we arrived, we were then sent away as we had no money to buy something to use the toilet.Warm up kept getting interrupted by incoming phone call and the guy hosting it seemed very flustered and confused.Enjoyed the course none the less but didnt think it was worth 15.
Did the 10k in 2019
Race was delayed 40 minutes because the toilets were locked so we had to use a nearby cafe! No timing chips, lack of marshals and poor signage denoting where to register and where the start line was. Also no markers indicating how far you have run or left to go.

Hi. My wife, Angela Poolton, entered online a couple of weeks ago. The money has come out of our account but we haven't received an email. Could you check that my wife is indeed registered and do we collect the race number from you on the day? Cheers.
