    Dress up well, there was some great costumes
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    A great little build up to Xmas.Weather was cold wet and windy but we loved the race.Roll on next year
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    I ran with my 1 year old in her buggy and aside from the volume of runners (which is to be expected!) it was a really good course and buggy friendly all the way! Brilliantly organised and my little one enjoyed her (my!) well earned mince pie at the end! Oh, not forgetting the really lovely medal!
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    Course flat so pretty fast for runners. Advertised as being next to Uncle Tom cabin (cafe), very disappointing that it was not open at all, so very poor for spectators waiting in the cold. Bring you own flasks of tea/coffee!
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    I wish I had known about downloading an app to pay for parking. There is only one pay & display machine which took far too long to queue and pay.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    It was a fun and enjoyable event. The course was on pavement (only grassy if youre overtaking) and was flat too. It was wet and very windy so pack a rain jacket/top to wear under your festive costume. You get a mince pie at the end!!
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    Would of been handy to know where the race started
