Did the 10 Miles in 2020
It was very good race. Volunteers were wonderful - especially in the bitter cold. And bravo to the tamberine toting cheerleaders walking around the course. Only think that I would be great for you to consider it so make it plastic free. Water was in large plastic bottles, and some of the snacks were in plastic bags.

Overall satisfied with the event organization, track was interesting but in a good way! Usually not happy with the way RunThrough calculates the race distances but this one was done right. Maybe only thing was the passage to next lap a bit narrow if there are more than 3 runners close to each others. Anyway, would definitely do it again!

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
This half marathon was very well organised, with a helpful crew for bag drops, water and snacks. The support crew were also great at cheering us along when we needed it most. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Even though the course was a little monotonous, each lap brought cheery smiles and good vibes from the support team. My advice would be to pace yourself as its 13 laps!

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
I think this is a good 'casual' racing in preparation of a bigger event. It's a 1 mile lap plenty of turns that makes the distance calculation on the gps quite inaccurate at times (not much though!). Organisation is clear and smooth, however I believe they should not allow kids (1 - 2 years old) to stand on the road with their parents as it's dangerous for them. I also believe the medals could be a little bit more 'stylish' and different for each event (I should not be getting the same medals of somebody who ran 5k, I believe, but this is a minor thing).Atmosphere is ok, a bit cold, not much 'entertainment' but I did not expect much. The type of attendance is very diverse and it attracts a lot of 'walkers' and 'very slow runners' so not really competitive.Results and picture are available almost immediately however the pictures are not searchable, so you need to look at the entire album to find yourself.Much better than a training and allows you to concentrate on your pace as the course is a repeating short loop.
