RunThrough is always great at the organisation of their events, and I love their motivational one-liners through out the course. The fact that the course is 6 laps is challenging mentally, but lets you really focus on your running. Great camaraderie at the finish line as well!

Keeping track of the number of circuits was irritating and difficult. The sign boards to work out distance run and yet to run was awkward and I found it impossible to understand
