Beautiful sunny day in a beautiful park. Race was flat, mostly. There was water at 5k and then at the 10k finish. Lovely medal. Lovely atmosphere. A nice event. Will do it again 👍

It was a great morning. Running on gravel takes alot out of you. My best pace was on the concrete bits. My only suggestion is starting earlier next time....especially as the weather was quite hot.
