Great course for a PB. 4 laps of the course, but didn’t get bored as it’s such a cool venue. Friendly staff, good parking and a pub round the corner for a post run pint 👍🏻

Very well organised and everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant. I don’t know how the halves did it because 2 laps was quite tedious. Fantastic medal and interesting venue!

Considering there was a 5k, 10k and half marathon running at the same time it was really well organised. The course was flat and good for pushing the pace. Will be doing it again.

Great venue. Bit repetitive but atmosphere makes up for it Think 10km should start slightly later as half and 10kms finishing at same time Nice medal and awesome flapjack

It was my first ever race. Loved it! Only thing Id recommend is a healthier food range in the grandstands. It seemed the only food you could buy wasnt exactly sticking with the healthy running theme.
