    Really well organised. Arrived 20min before start, collected number straight away and ran on time. Friendly marshals, Great medal
  • Did the 10K in 2020

    Loved this race (a new PB always helps). Well signposted, quick easy number pick up, secure area for bags, a few portaloos, friendly volunteers, live results available very quickly and of course the most beautiful setting. Small improvement suggestions - I would've liked to see the route as part of pre race info (I'd managed to find the one from the previous year, but this year turned out to be different). I could hear the pre race briefing, but I'm not sure it travelled to the back of the crowd. I'm sure I'll run this again - great way to start the year. Thanks to all involved.

    Excellent venue, nice flat well marked course using volunteers and markers. A good 5k course for beginners. Lots of parking available, easy registration station, overall a excellent race I will do again. The medal was good and can be used as a bottle opener too.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    It was a beautiful setting for the run and all the staff and marshals were really helpful. The main thing that could have made it better is if there had been signs from the carpark as none of us knew how to get to registration and some people waited so long to pay for parking that they missed the start. Maybe there could be a system of paying for parking in advance? The other thing is that we brought a team of junior triathletes who won quite a few prizes but none of them could claim them because they were alcohol. So prizes suitable for all ages would be better.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Absolutely loved this 10k! It was a very cold morning but running around the beautiful lake was stunning. The course was flat and a really nice combination of gravel paths and in the woods. The course definitely has PB potential as it is flat and wide. It was a 5k course and so those doing the 10k went twice which really was an advantage seeing it all again. The race was well organised with water at the 5k point and a lovely medal at the end. Will definitely do this again!
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Great course, great signage and friendly marshalling on the course. Agree with other reviewers that pre-race comms needed to include a clear course map with directions to the start from the car park (and to be prepared to allow time for a pay and display machines queue). A goodie bag to take away might have been nice...a cereal bar to eat after etc...always happy for that to be built into the event price personally. Would do again in 2020.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Very good event on the whole. It would be good if you could sell car park tickets with entries so we don't have to queue at the machines. It would also be good to separate the water station from the 5K finish. It was hard to get to the water for 5K finishers hanging around.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Enjoyable Course Well Signed, Wonderful Marshalls Only one minor gripe it would have been advisable to inform all participants that the car parking is pay and display and to allow plenty of time to park, pay & display as the start was delayed for this reason where runners didnt allow enough time
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Lovely flat off road course around Black Park, well organised, lots of marshalls and route markers so didn't get lost. Lots of runners at various levels of fitness, I was one of the last to finish but was cheered on all the way and a very welcome cheer at the finish line. I will definitely do it again.
