  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Extremely friendly and very well organised Event with a large crowd support in the town which was brilliant! The water stations were well manned and the start/ finish lines and prize giving we’re superbly run. It was a much bugger event than I was expecting and I really enjoyed it.

    The course itself is a quite hilly especially in the first half but I think this adds to the overall feeling of achievement!
