Great race! Love this fast flat course right by the sea. I hope normal prize giving can happen for the rest of the races as I miss those.

Really enjoyed Race 1 of Gosport 5k Summer Series 2022. The organisers are friendly and efficient, the course flat and (potentially) fast.. always depending on weather and wind conditions.. Which last night were calm-ish and cool-ish😁. The Marshalls and crowd, at the finish, always full of cheers of support.. But most of all.. The location.. Breathtaking views beside the Solent and a sunset to inspire a sprint finish🏃🏼‍♀️.. Just Great 🌅Thankyou 😊See you again at Race 2.!🤞
