Really smooth day. Was my first ‘proper’ 10. Ideal course for that. Really straightforward registration etc. Started me off the n doing loads more!

I love the Let's Do This races! They'd always so well organised and friendly. Currently recovering from long Covid and unable to run, but nice to be able to look at my medal to keep me hopeful to get running with you again in the not too distant future.

Having a 5k, a 10k and an HM at the same time is not really a good idea.The course was confusing (and because it was laps,) it was also dangerous: fast runners that had to overtake "plodders" were often forced to step up and down from the sidewalk.Overall I would not run it again

This was my first 10K race in Victoria Park. The event was well organised with the number collection super fast, the bag drop was convenient given that it was a cold day to get rid of excess clothing during the race.

Found navigation of finish line and distance markers unclear, but otherwise nice. Prefer the RunNation Victoria Park set up

Brilliant, flat course and really well organized. Worth mentioning it's very important to keep your eyes and ears peeled on the last lap for instructions. Would definitely run this event again and recommend it to friends.

The event had a lovely 'local' feel and not the usual Corporate atmosphere you get with a lot of events now. The staff at the event were very helpful and friendly. My only slight criticism is that we really should dispense with ornate, metal medals. I would much prefer to have something like a chocolate or gingerbread medal.

Funny way to get people to move! Too busy later on for more talented runners. And the corners are too sharp and slippery for them. Thanks for the volunteers and organisation!

Thank you for the support and organisation, I was fond of pretty much everything, the only thing I was missing was the last lap of the half-marathon wasn't all signed pre-race and eventually marked as ''0.5 miles'', it took me however, nearly 4 minutes to conquer which implies it had to be longer and likely mismeasured by the organisers. Generally happy for my results, however, couldn't do strong finish due to longer than expected distance in the last lap
