Did the 5 Mile in 2019
Great course, started with a challenging hill and there were several more to follow. Good mix of muddy track and cycle paths. Majority of runners in Christmas themed outfits which added to the festive atmosphere Lots of non runners using the same route. All v friendly..Will be back in 2020!
