Great fun

Well organised race in a unique environment! Included admission to the zoo for the rest of the day which we really enjoyed (the theme park was closed).

Amazing fun, very well organised.

Slick registration process, all the races went off on time, and the coordination of all elements was brilliant, no hitches, a really enjoyable race in unusual surroundings. Nice medal and lovely photography inclusive. I would definitely do it again and highly recommend it.
