  • Did the Big Fun Run in 2018

    Nice course in a beautiful park. Great goodie bag at the finish too. Well organised but a bit lacking on atmosphere as entries are quite low.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Pretty, flat, mostly tarmacked route. Only a couple of off-road bits which because of recent weather were a bit muddy, but we were warned about this on arrival. Marshals recommended that we avoid these bits (which would leave the route short by some 2km, which we could make up, so not a big deal). Course surprisingly scenic given the location - bit of an easter egg there. Lots of really nice graffitti art work, plus great marshal support and lots of cake, biscuits, water etc at support stops and at finish line. Really friendly atmosphere, will definitelry come again next time.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    We got detailed emails with race info a week before the race. Couldn't have faulted the race organisers on any pre-race info: didn't need to ask any questions because they were all answered in the confirmation email.The course was a bit wet & muddy in places because of recent weather, but it was still a really pretty route with frequent water/refreshment stops and was really well marshalled. We were warned at registration that overnight weather had meant a last minute route- ammendment, but that was ok. At least the organisers wanted to look after us rather than just run the race regardless.There was tea and coffee at the start, and parking and toilets not far away. The vibe was really friendly and all the people were really lovely. Apparently no time or age restrictions, so that relaxed us a lot.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    We booked late (Friday night and the run was Saturday morning) but the communication was excellent (or should that be eggcellent with it being easter). Mel emailed the instructions Friday night and even found time to answer my last minute text message on the morning of the run. A friendly event and value for money. Medal and a goodie bag, not to mention all those cakes and treats at the end. Thank you everyone. The route was slightly shortened due to weather, but that was told to us at the race briefing so not a problem.
