Good for beginners

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    The race itself was great however we all had a 15 minute delay due to many runners receiving duplicate numbers by which time i had cooled down a lot. But the race itself fantastic and highly reccomend it.
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    A fun road race around the centre of Plymouth. Fairly cheap and combines adult & junior racing on a nice, easy course.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Good race, cold morning though!The course was all road, so no need for trail gear!
  • Did the event in 2018

    I volunteered to be a pacer and ran as the 60 minute pacer. The event was well organised and used the guikdhall as a central hub again. The route is reasonably flat for Plymouth. Very enjoyable.
