Did the race in 2020
It was very well organised, great atmosphere and a fantastic way to start the year! Loved it, thank you!!!
Did the race in 2019
Very well organised event and just what I needed to kick start the new year as I prepare for a spring marathon !
Did the race in 2019
Good course, little repetitive at 6.5 laps - fewer Ionger laps would be ideal! Atmosphere was good considering it was the 5th of January... but could have been a bit more uplifting (and maybe a slightly sheltered area to keep out of the cold before the race). Always very organised and easy to register and pick up bibs on the day. Love Run Through events and will continue to sign up!!
Did the race in 2019
Whilst I was initially concerned 6 laps might be boring - far from as there were always people on the course but not enough to slow you down. Great variety of runners of all abilities all looking to enjoy the run.The course was flat which made it a fast course for a PB and also suitable for beginners of all distances.Overall a great experience.
Did the race in 2019
Excellent organisation by the RunThrough team. Great course, very flat and fast. Great goodies and medal, and free photos
