Did the race in 2023
10k route was lovely 2 laps around the parks, had a close up view of the famous deer, well marshalled and clear signposting. Small field gave it a special community feel 😊!

Did the race in 2022
The start time was too late, given it was a hot day and not enough water stations.
Did the race in 2021
Great location and great for my first run event but lacks atmosphere. Pretty well organised.

Did the race 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.
