This is the first time I have done this event, I will be back. Course can be challenging as there is really no excuse to ease off. No hard hill climbs no kerb stones and best of all no traffic. Great event good cause. Thank you., regards, Fred.

Excellent event, well organized and really friendly. Nice even course with happy, encouraging marshalls. The medal is superb - probably the best one I've ever received. Added bonus of staying on after to enjoy the museum. Well done to everyone involved.

Luckily good weather and a truly fab. day with a great crowd of supporters adding to the atmosphere, considering the turnout a big 'well done' to the organisers/marshalls. Q? In future can the medal giving at the finish line be pushed back? from a sprint finish to a dead stop is quite hard.

Much more than a race, brilliant organisation and whilst it's not stunning scenery it is very interesting, probably unique, running up and down the runway. Fantastic atmosphere and support and so friendly. Year on year one of the best medals and great shirt. When you have finished your race the museum is free with great amenities including gift shop and cafe. Love it

Lovely organised run. The only thing that possibly needs a bit of organising is the water station as it got very bottle necked for the runners, given that there were people still running their first half and the faster runners starting to make their way back through this section. Maybe it could be at a wider point and just have it on the one side. If a second station for returning runners is deemed necessary maybe stagger the stations?

Really enjoyable experience, awesome venue, great medal but could do with more rubbish bins on the course though especially when there was an announcement not to leave litter
