Excellent event, really enjoyed the whole experience. Not a good race for a PB, too many other runners, sharp turns and climbs. Otherwise a blast.

The event was great fun and very challenging - thoroughly enjoyed the day out going on the rides after a hard race! Spectators were great and the atmosphere was fun.Organisation could do some work - it was clear where to start gathering - different Marshall’s said contradicting this and it was no clear at all what the starting group were and when to approach so people (fast and slow) were all starting in the wrong order - get pacers or flags for starting pens Also - at the aid station there was no bin for bottles so they were all over the course bad for stepping on and terrible for litter! Just need a skip or a bottle bin 400m up the course and guided signs to its location. All together very pleased and will be going again.

Excellent venue and race and would have been 5 stars overall if PA system prior to start had been better. Not loud enough bearing in mind size of crowd.

The course was much more of an incline than the website said, we had issues with our tickets, nobody knew where they were meant to wait, we were told to get there VERY early and there was only about 3 stalls and not much else to do while waiting and trying to entertain a 9 year old, the stewards weren't telling people where to go or wait unless you grabbed them, the speakers weren't loud enough, the warmup area was far too muddy - they should look at putting straw or matting down, over 50% of the runners didn't get put into their time categories, we kept getting different instructions on where to congregate, A huge amount of the course was in the car park, none was in the gardens as stated on the website, Several photographers asked me to pose and none managed to actually get a shot of me posing - only me running off.

Good event, I’ve given the course 4 star as I thought they could of utilised the gardens more, avoided the merging of the 5 and 10k and also I thought the part of the run through the car park was a bit dull.Also next time please separate people’s ability at the start better please as it was a bit dangerous mixing the club runners with the slower runners.

A bit of confusion at the start, maybe because it was their first event, the course was hilly and tight in places could have been very difficult if wet, surroundings very unique which was a plus. Medal was joint for 10k and 5k which was a bit disappointing.

I believe this was the first at Alton Towers, and the organisation wasn't the best, it was quite hard to work out where to go for a warm up, then we couldn't hear the speakers for the warmup. There was quite a delay between warm up and the start and it should have been broken down into waves with individual warm ups, however, this was a fantastic event, the staff and marshalls on the course were great with characters and bands, running round the rides (although hilly) was great, then staying on at the park after for an afternoon to an evening of rides was just fantastic. I would definitely do this again. If it was less organised next time I still wouldnt be disappointed.( The adrenaline may not have warn off yet..)

Absolutely amazing challenging course through the rides, with the Alton towers staff dressed up and cheering us on too! For next time the queuing up to start system could have been better organised and maybe a goody bag at the end not 6 different tables to grab from but would 100% recommend!

Great location and the route inside the park was great. Not so much the laps of the car parks. The start organisation was awful with people heading in the wrong direction, but the marshalls en route we’re fab and so supportive. The atmosphere was great, and access to the rides afterwards was brilliant with small or no queues. Well done on a tough, hilly but fabulous new race 👏
