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
