The marshals cheering you on thought-out the course were great and were needed! Especially up the big hill.

Sharing the paths with members of the public taking a steady stroll through the park caused a few little hold ups. By comparison, Alton Towers run 2021 has been my favourite run by far. The atmosphere was electric!!

Brilliant day . Go for it even if you don't feel quite ready and fit enough. You can still get through with all the encouragement. And no one bothers how long you take!!

Atmosphere at the start was good. Nice to have PA running warm up session. Arrival was lacking any signage to get to event village for bib collection. Was very frustrating that the run route wasn’t restricted to pedestrians. Had kids, kids on bikes, dogs on and off leads and people stood having conversations in the middle of paths of the running routes. Observed man runners and also myself having to deviate from our run paths to get a round or avoid falling over them.

I did enjoy it throughly! This isn't a flat course though and there's certainly a killer of a climb

For 3 events happening st once, on public footpaths within the park I thought it was ran so smoothly.The marshal who led the warm ups and was then pn hand to offer motivation and advice throughout the run was superb, going as gar as to sprint with me in the home stretch to make sure I was under the 26 minute marker for the 5k. A superb ambassador for the event.

Hated the big hill!! Apart from that it was a lovely course although it did surprise me how stupid the park goers (public) were. Completely oblivious to us all busting a gut and there they were cycling, dog walking generally sauntering in front of runners. Madness. Nowt as queer as folk as they say.
