This is the second year that I have ran the 10k and this year ran with my son. As usual the event was well organised with helpful and friendly marshalls who stood out in the freezing conditions shouting encouragement on both laps. The course is a good mixture of trail and paths and highly recommended.....mustn't forget the medal is great also!

Highly recommended race. Great atmosphere and lots of fancy dress! Very well organised including toilet facilities, and fab marshalling - a big shoutout to all the marshalls who froze so that those of us nest the end could finish. Always cheerful and helpful. nice course with some good views if you were able to look - pretty flat mixed off and on road. Book early next year to avoid disappointment as it got booked up!
