Did the race in 2023
Staff were fabulous, not much camaraderie from other runners! Half an hour given to get back before 10k set off which caused slight congestion at my finish!! Booked to do it again in June as wanting an under 30 minute PB

The staff were really friendly and helpful. Although when I booked I was given the wrong start time (1 hour late) for my race? The staff still allowed me to run, but I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to race with others in my category on the day

It was a great route andf overall a good event. Unfortunately there were two contradictory lots of information about the race schedule. I figured just turn up early and ask. Good job i did as the website would have had me there an hour late. Regarding atmosphere; if there was an option for start vs finish atmosphere I would have given the finish a lower score.There was a good atmosphere at the start of the half (which also meant lots of support for finishers of some of the earlier events)By the time I finished (I'm not fast, but I'm also nowhere near the tail) there was little to no atmosphere at the finish...
