Good for beginners
Issues with course length/marshalling.Still unsure of results! A friend ran 8km instead of 10k! Dog and I loved it though
3.3Did the 5k in 2021
10k was short as marshal directed us the wrong way really disappointing as first race after lockdown
1.7Did the 10k in 2021
I have done this twice this year and have loved everything about it - and my springer has too! Looking forward to next year.
Did the 5k in 2019
Unfortunately couldn't recommend this event. Wouldn't be doing this event again. Some of other runners were rude shouting to get out of there way. People with 2 dog had no control.

Really good run, just need more dog friendly events like this one.Dog loved it and enjoyed his doggy biscuit at the finishing line.
4.0Did the 10k in 2019
I wish I'd been told the correct start time in the most recent email I had from you. My dog was getting anxious with the extra hanging around. Others were worried they were missing the start too.
4.0Did the 5k in 2018
I really enjoyed the course. Such a beautiful place for a run.The only thing I missed was more basic etiquette from several runners. Informing when overtaking or thanking when helped.... Regardless the downs. I loved it and I hopefully come again!
3.7Did the 10k in 2018
