It was my first 10K. Overall experience was amazing, staff where excellent motivators and kept us smiling. The warm up sessions where well thought out and very helpful. The free coffee and the gifts at the end where good. I would happily recommend this to a friend and attend again.

I absolutely loved this race and will definitely be doing it again next time! I love running the run through races because the marshals are great cheering you on and being supportive. Overall a great morning I had

The course is rather dull, I imagine even more so for the half-marathoners, especially for someone who runs the southampton parkrun in the same common

Nice friendly relaxed atmosphere. Had to count your own laps on the half marathon and maybe a lap count of some kind would be useful.

It would be good to have a urinal portaloo at the start to reduce the very long queues. Also to either post out numbers or have somewhere they can be collected before the day. I ran the half and my partner the 10k so we needed to arrive early for me to collect and then he had to hang around for a long time until the 10k started.

A second water/gel station was needed, as it became very humid in the tree covered area. Which was also the uphill part of the course and furthest away from the drink station. So difficult at times, if like myself and a friend of mine have exercise induced asthma.

Very enjoyable run. For me as a novice nice to try something that is a bit more than just flat! Probably about 40% of the course was uphill, 40% down hill.Good organisation with plenty of marshalls and lovely location.Once again thank you Runthrough
