Overall really great race for the first one of the year, relativity flat course great for people who are looking for a nice calm one to start the year off.Bit of a mix up with numbers but one quick email and it was all rectified and sorted within the hour after the race

Great run. Definitely has got PB potential. Only entered because I was going to be in the area when the race was going on. Im glad I did.

Awesome event....I got there at 8am (I like to be early) and its was set up ready to go...the team were super helpful and friendly and well organised! Checking in and getting my race number was quick and easy and the announcer kept it interesting while we waited to start. The race itself was a nice easy 10k with plenty of support and loads of Marshall cheering you on. Crossing the finish line was awesome as the announcer made a fuss if everyone and it was straight into your medal and goodie bag. A great winter warmer race and highly recommended. Only thing I would say is more toilets please...everyone wants to empty their bladder just before a race and 12 loos for a thousand people isn't quite enough...good job the river was only 20 yards away!! Great work team ...thankyou!

Great small scale organised run around the beautiful Bute Park/Cooper's field area of Cardiff. Very well organized although as it is a public area some of the river crossing points were a little congested. Also start was very congested not sure people listened to the advice for faster runners to start 1st. Didn't stop me getting a PB over 10k. The course is nice and flat. Would definitely compete again in this event.

I really enjoyed the race and the scarf/running snood was a very welcome addition to my running kit on that chilly morning in Cardiff. The run takes place in the lovely setting on Butr Park with views of the castle, the stadium and river. The event organisation was great and they ensured that the course has been treated with grit. It was really easy to pick up my number and the warm up at the start helped motivate me. I ran a PB too
