Really fantastic organisation, the marshalls were exceptional. Loved the cake at the end. Just a pity it clashes with Man United being at home and having to play dodge the football fan for a lot of it

Wonderfully run and a lovely lady helped put my shoe tag on as I was running late. It was a shame it clashes with the football, though I think it was a rescheduled game so wasn't run throughs fault. I love who I assume is the military guy (black, super friendly who normally starts race at tatton) as he played some banging times on the bridge!

My time wasn’t recorded on the event and the route had to be amended due to a Manchester united game. I am aware it isn’t the race organisers fault and they did an excellent job of rearranging the course and keeping the course as free as possible of pedestrians. I would highly recommend the even but would also recommend an alternative choice of recording times

Really enjoyable event. My only minor gripe is no finishing line photograph after the 25 minute mark. Would have been nice as it was my partners first medal race.

Was a bit put off running the same lap four times rather than one 10 k route but it wasn't as bad as I thought. The Marshall s were great, very supportive.

This was my first ever 5 k run. The registration assistance was brilliant with the desk assistant giving me just the correct amount of reassurance. Warm up was fun, start well organised and clear as was the finish. Really helpful stewards.
