This was my first running event ever and I really enjoyed it. Everyone was really friendly- only points of constructive criticism would be to have a MUCH clearer website and make it much easier to find photos and results. It took me days if searching through the web to find anything ! Also, the photos taken were pretty bad but that's a minor thing ! Overall, really fun and friendly event … read more

Lovely fast, flat, PB potential course. Whilst laps aren't the most fun thing, it enables easy pacing and a chance for supporters to see you and cheer you on multiple occasions. Get there early if you want to relax as there will likely be a queue for registration and the toilets.
