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.
