This is the second zoo 10k I've done but on my own this time. The atmosphere was great, helped by encouraging marshals and music en route. Well done organisers and volunteers 👍🏻

Loved it - lovely runners (elite and non-runners alike) very friendly marshalls and lots of them. Great atmosphere too. I am an experienced runner and would say to others who perhaps have never run an organised race before, give it a go and dont be put off. You will defo have a positive experience xxx Good luck
