Well organised. Only criticism is that the queues were shorter for those who registered on the day than for those pre-registered.

A well run course and provided enough changes in elevation to keep it interesting without being to difficult.

Did the 10K in 2018
I did this as my first 10K in December 2018. It was a great morning with over 300 people all dressed as Santa. Good course and well organised with plenty of encouragement from the volunteers. Chip timed. Great fun and I have booked again this year.

Did the race in 2018
A nice fun event to celebrate Christmas.Pros: big car park, traffic-free run, indoor changing area, proper toilets, Santa costume included in the price, massive finisher medal, free pics to download from Facebook.Cons: parking was not free and the queue at the ticket machine was very long, Santa costume comes in one size only so it was a bit uncomfortable to wear, chip time was not made available (I assume there was a technical issue) so only gun time was uploaded on RunBritain.

Did the 10K in 2018
I had never run at the cyclopark before so I wasnt sure what to expect. The 10k Santa Dash comprised 4 laps all on tarmac road surface. There was a lovely downhill bit........and then a bit of a slow burn with a couple of little hills. I was delighted to be First Lady and look forward to competing again in 2019.
