Did the race in 2019
It is a nice race in the center of town, organization was good and simple so nothing to complain about. Only negative point: no picture at all of the relay.

Great relay race, well organised and terrific support from the Marshalls. This was my first run/race in over a year since a serious injury, I was worried about being too slow and feeling embarrassed about my lumbering jog, but I neednt have worried. Will definitely do it again next year. My husband and I love our medals too!

Did the race in 2018
Ive never ran this route before, and although I find 2 laps demoralising, it was okay. The route is very open to the elements. There wasnt much atmosphere, and couldve had some music to pump people up. Because we had to collect numbers on the day, there was a lot of standing about in the freezing cold. I was there way too early. Not much atmosphere at the end either.

Enjoyed this race. First 10k I had done. Only issue but I think this was a computer issue , I signed myself and friend up and for some reason it was registered under her name twice. Looking at the results it also didn't pick up my number for the times.
