Great event. Lovely course. Awful weather :)You do need to invest in a new PA system. The briefing was non-existent!Great marshals.An update pre-race day on course conditions would have been helpful as they were horrendous and I would have worn different footwear with that info.Keep up the good work!

Really lovely run. Well organised, nice route, lovely marshals. Would be good to have another aid station or two. I carried my own water as well as using the aid stations and really needed it.

Very muddy and slippy due to the rain before the start. 10k run had no distance markers, only the miles for the half marathon.

Trained hard for this event however was sadly disappointed at the end of the 10k when one of the Marshalls was not In place and as a result myself and several other runners ran off of the course by half a mile! Would have finished third eventually finished fifth!! Course was wonderfully tough and would still run it again all be it there were issues!
