- Course was not 10K (5.97 miles of 6.20). My time is therefore invalid.

- Results not published until 7+ days afterwards.

- No direct response to my contact on 2 different platforms until 8+ days afterwards. No apology.

Pretty basic boxes to tick for a running event.

10k? I think not

Dissapointed that an official '10k' actually only measured out to 5.9 miles (out of 6.2). Disheartening to those looking to beat a time or take the event some what seriously. Also the chip van had such an enormous queue it wasnt worth it after the run. Overall a good track, very friendly people, but why sign up to a 10k that isnt a legitimately 10k long? I would have thought that was the overriding factor when planning such an event.

Pretty decent

The queue for the chips at the end was so long, maybe have more than one chip van seeing as that was the premise of the event. Other than that... good

What fun!

Great atmosphere, supportive friendly runners, well organised. And the fizz and chips made the challenge worth it.

Well organised

Did this for the first time yesterday and throughly enjoyed it. Decent glass of Prosecco at the end and freshly cooked chips!!

Super event - very well organised! Great chips!

Despite the rain and wet conditions, this was a great event. Pressecco and chips were top quality!
Parking was easy to find.
I will definitely be signing up for next years! :-)

Thank you

Great event

As always, well organised and fun. Small numbers of runners (a couple of hundred not 20,000!) makes for a nicer feel. No crowding at all. A pleasant out and back course, although my Garmin measured it at 9.57 am. Not complaining, I got my chips a little bit quicker!
