Did the race in 2022
The event was poor. Started off OK, with the tunnocks van guiding us on our way. There after was terrible. There was 4 different signs with arrows along the route, none helped and we where not advised which signage was for our race. There was a run on at the same time, in the opposite direction, the runners having to dodge us and vice versa, they had Marshals guiding them. No such luxury for us. We did have a map, and we followed as best as we could. The botanical gardens was horrendous, no way to know which direction to go inside. Yes we did walk the wrong way. We did complete our 10k walk, which involved walking round and round the park to make up the distance. We where officially the first group to finish, but 2 young females crossed first a good 20 mins before us. Definitely not having completed 10k. For the price of the event, I am apauled at the organisation of the event. I entered this to raise funds for my charity. Definitely will never return. Very disappointed.

Badly organised, we got lost more than once because of the lack of directions - there we no marshals either. Nobody walked in a groups, everyone walk off in their own groups and there no no atmosphere at all. The medal didn't even have the year on. I could honestly say it was sadly the worst walk I've ever attended.

No directional signs around the Botanic Gardens or stewards to help so got lost. The map did not give any detail of landmarks around the park. Stewards at the gate were not very helpful and informed us we would not receive a medal. Very disappointing🙁

Nice atmosphere, but the walk was very poorly signposted with no signs inside Botanics — people were confused and frustrated. Keeling the sad-looking reindeer near that very loud loudspeaker was cruel.

Haphazardly signposted and the map was incorrect. The loudspeakers were placed directly next to the reindeer — they looked absolutely miserable.

The Map was rubbish and very unhelpful as it did not give landmarks. There was no stewards or people to help with directions on the walk. we got lost with other people and gave up on completing the walk. We were all very disappointed and will never do it again and will not recommend it either!
