Did the 5k in 2021
Really inclusive race. The looped set up means that slower runners don't feel left behind. Really friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely do this again.
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Overall for what I wanted it was a good event, however there was also a lot of disappointment, the event village was just one expensive food seller and a stall selling Bobby hats, which for me is way off an event village. My family came with me thinking they could have a choice of foods and a wonder around some stalls at least, considering they had a 2 hour wait for me 😌, there was not even a shelter for them to sit and drink a coffee or eat. I would think for the 2 thousand or so entrants who most brought family /supporters opening part of Aintree up for them would have created more of an income stream. Think the organisation missed out on a money earner there.
Did the 10k in 2019
Really enjoyable and well organised event. Second time I’ve done the 10k will definitely be back for more.
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Great organised event , lovely people supporting the race , very relaxed atmosphere from everyone there, great timings of all the races , looking forward to future races from this events company , will recommend other runners to there races , only thing I did wrong was throw my timing band in the bin , didn't realise it was still in the envelope , hay ho next time will remember ,Dave.
