The photo you've used for this event clearly wasn't taken at this event. The course was fine, and I'm sure PBs were had, but the look, feel, and all around presentation of the event itself just wasn't there. Everything was very half-hearted, and felt a little thrown together in comparison to other events. A shame really.

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.

Terrible organisation. No toilets open. Start delayed by nearly 40 minutes and a complete lack of atmosphere.

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.

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.
