Did the race in 2019
Very well organised regarding pre and post race. Some cars on the route though. A hilly 2 lap course!

Did the race in 2019
The last route along the old railway line was not good, leaves slippery, people with dogs off the lead, can’t the whole course be on tarmac???? Other than that great run thank you
Did the race in 2018
I wish we'd known how far the car park was away from the finish. I suffer badly with cold after a race and would have liked the parking closer to the finish.That is the only negative.
