  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Amazing race I do it once or twice a year i come all the way from Peterbrough best finsh was 2nd frendley perfect race love it and aways tell people about it
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    My 4th race here and a new track, good route but maybe a little too narrow at the end of the start straight where he entire pack of runners had to slow right down to almost walking pace, not ideal if anyone is wanting to grab a good time. Other than that small gripe - great organisation as usual - thank you!
