  • Did the 5K in 2019

    The place where the marathon took place was so badly marked for an hour we were looking for a place. Google map was not well positioned with this place. I am asking you to describe the place where the run will take place next time.
  • Did the event in 2018

    No, instructions were clear and useful.
