Did the race in 2020
A really fun event and a great atmosphere from start to finish!A very warm welcome and a great big cheer at the end.... AND BEER! 🍀🍻❤️
Did the race in 2019
I got lost in a field like lots of other people, needed better organisation at this point, overall it was fun but not worth 18
Did the race in 2018
Although they'd posted the course before, I did not know that the bits that went through the park were actually all mud and no path. I was not expecting this at all and although it was clear it was going to slow down my final time at that point, I wish I had known this before. There were no bathrooms during any parts of the course, nor at the beginning. Since we were coming to the race from out of town, we did not stop for a bathroom break before as we thought (as is the case with most races) that bathrooms would be available there (at least before the start!). Aside from that, the staff was very friendly and helpful, though it was obvious everything was a bit disorganised.
Did the race in 2018
I would have liked to have known they had course problems and it was a 10 1/2knot a simple 10k.
