The run itself was great; although very challenging running on sand, it was a lot of fun. We ran out in trainers but took them off on the way back to run in the sea barefoot (much easier). There were amazing marshalls along the way too - very enthusiastic and encouraging! My criticism would be the organisation. I had to email the event organisers a few days before the event to request more information and ask how we got our race numbers/start time etc. They also mentioned chip timing but no chips were given (I think someone was manually timing based on our number) and the results table is very confusing with all the 5k times mixed in with the 10k. We initially registered as a group of 4 too but were recorded as individuals. There was a photographer on the day as well but no indication of where we might be able to find photos (nothing on their FB page or website so far other than one group shot). All in all, a good run if you want something fun but challenging that you can take your time with rather than a "race".
