pedestrians in way of road was annoying but guess it’s not meant to be a PB course event in general was alright though maybe not worth £25 per entry per person not to hate on it though the event was decent

The race, organisation and atmosphere is absolutely fine. What would make me reticent to do it again is the time and location - if it was Sunday morning rather than a weekday night, it would be more convenient. I suspect this is a staple for Salford and South Manchester running clubs but mine is in North Manchester (Oldham) which is less convenient. No issues other than that - great race and great night

It was my first 10k completed in 1 hour 16 mins. I did enjoy it eventually! The atmosphere was great and the organisation was super. I was a bit bored by the 4th loop but glad it was the finishing loop!

This was my first ever run, after being written off from a very early age it was a massive deal for me. The new hip did very well but the not very good one not so good. I did it , didn’t stop, just got to to the end and that’s a win!
