5.0Did the 10k in 2021
Great atmosphere, good run despite a few obstacles (people walking and cycling) Would do again without hesitation. One point for me was I ran the course slightly longer than 2.5Km per circuit. I have learnt to cut a few corners next time and shave the chip time down even further!
