  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Although the traffic was awful on the morning, resulting in a rush to the start and then a delay, I thoroughly enjoyed the event and look forward to next year.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    The event was well organised. With the stunning weather conditions there is no doubt that there would be a delay to the start of the race. The support from organisers and spectators deserve a pat on the back.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    A few hiccups delayed start by 30 minutes which was not idea especially after we had warmed up ,eat pre race banana and toilet stops.Getting out of carpark took over 20 minutes. But a good course well organised, local's really got behind race and were very vocal with support and the hosepipe was most welcome.!
