The same mile round 13 times was a tad boring, but it was good for families and friends, good to have a water point and the volunteers and organisers were great.

it wasn't sign posted, the volunteers shaking tambourines weren't noticing athelets were on the ground and we as runners had to move away for the volunteers so they could use the running track - pretty poor
