A well organised and fun event

A thoroughly enjoyable day, well organised with lots of friendly people. The event was well signposted with helpful marshalls along the way. Plenty of food and drink options. It was also great to have free admission into the zoo afterwards. Although, it was a fair distance for me to travel to, it was well worth it and I would do it again next year.
