    Well organised family friendly race on a great route. Would do it again. And a lovely medal to boot.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Lovely flat coastal route - perfect on a sunny day!

    Well organised and well attended. Would definitely do it again.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Good run and virtually flat.
    Well organised
    Bit of a flat atmosphere though, I'm sure if you publicised it more locally you could get more people out to watch and cheer. I heard a few people along the route asking what was going on.
    Not a bad run tho.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Very well organised although as it was so hot, could have done with a water station sooner than 5k...
