Would have liked more bins and a few more toilets near the start. The warm up guys were ace and the Marshalls did a great job.

More signage from the carparks to the event area. I met up with 3 other people who had parked on Sheepfoot Lane and were unable to locate the meeting area. Marshalls wonderful. Warm up appreciated especially as so icy cold.

Only took up running past few months and signed up for the 5k as incentive to aim for something even though I prop up the back runners I enjoy the experience with the support from the passing experienced runners and stewards
