    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!

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    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

    Did the 5K in 2019

    Had a really lovely run with my step daughter around a natural park and could have run further hopefully next time thank you to all the volunteers
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I loved it - at first I thought doing 6 and a half laps of the park would be a bit of a challenge - it wasn't - doing a HM there was like doing a track race on a much larger scale.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A great race location, Victoria Park is stunning in the autumn. Easy for supporters to come and cheer you on. Nice flat course. Nice to have the 5k and 10k runners out with us for part of it.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    This was my first 10k and I enjoyed it overall - your volunteers were absolutely awesome and even though I was one of the slowest 10k times I didn't feel out of place.

    A little more signage for 10k runners would have been good - I wasn't sure where the lap started and ended so was relying on my app. Having said that, your volunteers were very proactive and clear when it came to the time where 10k people were finishing and were funneling off from the main route.

    Overall I'd definitely recommend this event.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Half marathon involved doing 6 laps. My only gripes are that they didn't clean up any of the super-slippery leaves, which would have been especially handy on the sharp corners. It's not fun having to avoid injuring yourself on a crowded course; for something that wouldn't have taken very long to clean up. Another bit of the course had horse-poo in the middle which they also didn't remove.

    Brilliant atmosphere, well organised, very good warm, nice course, thank you very much, support was so good, few hilarious glances when they saw I was running barefoot, but after the initial glance nice support.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The route was fairly dull to be honest. The lack crowds / support didn’t help and although your own staff did a great job it’s a venue I wouldn’t return to in the future.
