Great atmosphere and great crowd. Course a bit tight in places by some of the rides and very undulating.Would definitely recommend anyone to run especially as you have chance to go on the rides after.

The medal giving and free items being given out was a mess at the end. It should have been in a bag either the sponsored free stuff.

Loved it. Only complaint is that I found out a woman with her kids just came for the rides to get a cheaper option. That means runners and their families found it busier than last year.

Hi the car park is operated by Alton Towers so will be at their rate of £6 a day, although you're more than welcome to park elsewhere and walk/get the train in :) And rides will be open throughout the day, so You'll be able to go on them after the race. katie from RunThrough

I too want to know why it says free parking and now you're saying it's £6! Also why you haven't responded to Mark's message that was posted a month ago.
