Did the 5k in 2021
A very nice race but the wind was awful managed to miss all the rain but this made it very hard at start as most people stayed in there cars until the race was due to start. Nice flat course along the prom just got to say thank you for the marshalls as the weather was awful and they did a super job well organised race in bad conditions be back next year

Did the 10k in 2019
A fab event. Very well organised. Friendly marshalls. My only criticism would be not to have the markers at every KM. Maybe every 2.

Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. There is parking in and around the park. Once on Hampton Pier Avenue, you will see children’s play area and the free public car park (spaces are limited to 200 cars) on Swalecliffe Avenue which is directly opposite the event hub. Please ensure you plan your journey to arrive with plenty of time to spare! :)
