Really good event. Lovely course, well marshalled by motivating, enthusiastic volunteers. They had a large number of flagged pacers who did their job well, enabling me to do a new best time as a veteran. Lots of goodies at the end to replace the fuel used during the race.

This was a really tough Half marathon, the hills were harder than i was expecting but it was still a nice run nevertheless and still managed a PB. Well organised, volunteers were amazing!

The course is set in natural scenery and very undulating. The overall vibe was lovely and they had the best MC of any race I’ve done by a long way.

Lovely course! The marshals were so friendly and helpful. The stalls with food and drink were great and even better were the massage people where you could get a free massage before or after your race! Thank you so much

Really well organised especially with the weather being so changeable. This was my first event so I didn't know what to expect: their stands offering hot drinks and cakes was very much needed, the sign in areas were clearly sign posted, and the physio tent looked like it was being well used. It was a great atmosphere on the day and the volunteers really fed into that, it was a terrific day and I'd happily run it again!

This was my third race in Sutton Park, and I did the half marathon this time. Course consists of 4 laps of a 5km run through the park, with an extra out and back at the start for the half marathon runners to make up the difference. Always enjoy the races here as I get to see some lovely views on my way round. This route has a few big hills, the one near the start is especially steep for me personally. The marshalls are fantastic, really supportive of all the runners and were a big help in keeping me motivated when I was struggling. They seem to really care about what they're doing. The weather was particularly bad that day with strong winds but they didn't seem phased and still stand at the sidelines cheering everyone with enthusiasm. I unfortunately didn't get a time as I completed the half in a little over 3 hours. (3 hours 4 minutes according to my Strava) I was able to finish and got a medal, but was registered as a DNF on the offical race results. Doesn't bother me as I just wanted to finish but might be something for the slower runners like myself to bear in mind 🙋‍♀️. Portaloos and water station at the start/finish line, but none on the course. All in all a great experience and a lovely morning made fun by the dedicated marshals. See you at the next one!

Well organised. This was the first time I have ran at Sutton Park, the course was very nice although there were a lot more hills than I thought there would be. The event was well organised and plenty of people to encourage you along

Great first 10k run. Really enjoyed the race. One thing they could improve on is getting the late runners to register abit later so they don’t have to stand around in the rain
