    Great race, starter needs megaphone but otherwise all good.
    Def hilly but you did say undulating. The medal was brilliant!
    Efficient registration
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    Bring a change of footwear as got very muddy due to rain.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    It was great! Despite the weather. The only slight problem which the organiser cant do much about was the toilets. There was a massive queue so I missed the start
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Bear in mind you dont know who is doing 5k or 10k so be careful who you try to keep pace with!Its fairly hilly but not too severe.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I was a complete beginner and a little scared at the start line. The organisers have great comfort and said not to worry of time, someone will always be there waiting for runners. I did it, I got my medal and mince pie and I feel very proud. I shall return to another event with this company.
