Did the 10k in 2022
The course is about as flat as they come: 72ft total incline for the 10K according to my Garmin. Being on a race course at an airfield location, it's very open to the wind. Definitely good PB potential, if that's what you're looking for. No spectators around the course, but the Marshals were encouraging. General organisation was good, though some better signage would have been appreciated. There were only a few portaloo toilets, but for the relatively small attendance it was adequate, and queues were usually short. Overall I was happy with the event. Thank you to all the officials, Marshals, and the other competitors for making it a fun day.

The website stated the start time for 5K was 11.30 however the email before the event stated 10.15am start. Thankfully we arrived in time to complete the run. There was a lack of signage in the way to the parking area. This could have been highlighted on the way to the track and towards parking. The water and cereal bars after medal collection was lovely and much appreciated on a hot day (and empty belly!) The course was well posted with the km milestones along the way. An overall good event and I’d look to book again.

So unorganised, no one knew what they were doing. Definitely won't be coming to any of their events in the future.

There wasn’t really any organisation, no signage for the event as you got there. The course was also stone silent, no noise/talking from the organisers and very very limited staff. Appreciate not everyone needs this but can imagine for new runners or those who thrive on atmosphere this would have been a tough race.

Signage is needed to direct runners to race HQ and music would be nice at the start/finish area.

There was no signposting to the car park so many people went the wrong way. If there had been music at the starting line to get people more pumped up the atmosphere would have been given 5 stars. All in all it was a lovely run and I would definitely do it again. But with less heat and sun!

Great for a PB, once round track is 5K , twice 10K and so on. 2K - 3.5K has wind but you soon get your time back on the rest of the course l, I got a PB of 4 mins on my 10K. Tip. Don’t bother getting there early, there really is no need get there 10mins before you start to get your race number and then run. Hardly any support as it’s on a race track. Only support is by any supporters you bring your self.Would so do it again? Maybe if I wanted to get another PB during training.
