    Did the 10K in 2019

    This was my 1st 10k and i was a little disappointed. Toilets were awful ( toilets would not flush) and we had to pay which was not mentioned before hand to the best of my knowledge. Thought the route was okay, I would have preferred a straight 10k run, instead of having to do 2 circuits of the 5k route. Although I was not the fastest nor the last to finish, I thought it lacked atmosphere for the slower runners.

    It was FANTASTIC! My team of girls all did very well! It was a great course! I achieved my first ever FIRST PLACE!

    Did the 10K in 2019

    After initial annoyance at the email telling me the bib would be posted out (I wouldn't have received it as I was in holiday in Richmond) I was relieved I could pick it up on the day. The run was a lovely route, pity it was 2 laps but relieved it was a lot cooler than previous days parkrun. Volunteers all very friendly & helpful. Great medal.

    Lovely course with beautiful scenery. Fewer runners than I'd expect but that was great coz it meant it wasn't too crowded and barring a few inconsiderate people who run side by side in narrower parts (happens everywhere!) it was easy to go at your own pace & overtake where you wanted to. Only downside was just 3 ladies loos - woefully inadequate and there must have been a number of women who were forced to go to the start with a full bladder or start late.

    Really enjoyed the run, there wasn't much info at the start and an official warm up would be good.

    A well-organised race with good marshalling and prizes for all categories. I even managed to win one!
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    I do looked forward to this run but unfortunately the heat just got the better of me. Such a pity this run started so late as by 10am it was Scorturing hot. Very disappointed in the result and the whole experience.
