Great race. Cold , windy, fast. Good quality misery! Even though I am slower than a slow thing going slowly, the Marshalls and other runners were encouraging from start to finish. See you next year.

Well organised, great marshalls and clearly signposted. The route was pretty flat, ideal for a first-timer! The medal is also a great design.

A ENJOYABLE EVENT. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the Remberance Day run good race conditions and atmosphere the only disappointing thing was when finishing I finished around the same time as many other's and there was a gaggle of people at the finish line collecting medals which ment that my wife could not get a picture of me finishing my sergestion is to get finisher off track to collect medals freeing up the finishing line.

Enjoyable and well organised event. I didn't know what to expect from this race but it was a good experience. Great to run on a traffic free, flat and fast course. PB potential if you are in shape. The 3 lap approach didn't cause me any angst, it was fine. The Marshall's were friendly and encouraging, the start and finish streamlined and unfussy. Car parking next to the start and finish was great. And getaway was quick and easy after the race. Excellent to have showers as well although not many people seemed to be aware of it. There could have been more portaloos although the marshall that redirected us to the changing rooms across the grass did help the situation. The medal at the end was excellent, No t-shirt but I have enough of them and prefer the money going to the good causes. Will be back next year. The only issue with this course is that it is a wide open expanse and if the weather isn't as good it might be a bit windy on another day. Same for most races but probably a bit accentuated in this case. Well done to the organisers. Good job!!

Fun, fast course & great vibe. I thoroughly enjoyed the half marathon. I was a little apprehensive about doing 3 laps but the route was lovely with many long straights so you could get into a nice running stride. The vibe at the event was uplifting and fun, with good music. I think a couple more portaloos would have been useful since the queue got quite long. Overall a great run and I will take part again. Thank you to the organisers!

Well organised. A well organised run, with plenty of cheerful and encouraging marshals around the course. The weather was good, but if it had been raining one could wait in the car until called for start as parking is alongside the course.

Fab event. Great place to do a half marathon and get a PB. Very well organised and brilliant to be running it on Remembrance weekend. Loved it.

Lacking loo roll and atmosphere. Plenty of toilets but toilet paper ran out way before some of the races started - small thing but made all the difference on the day. Course was good but not a huge amount of atmosphere. Advertised as a Remembrance run but apart from one box of poppies on a table there wasn’t actually any remembrance/royal British legion element.
Hi Rachel, thanks for your feedback. The toilet supplier was on site and as soon as it was reported that the toilet paper had run out he fetched some more. We were supposed to have 12 military marshals on the course in full gear and they were going to bring 6 military vehicles to display around the course but they were called out on a bomb threat the day before so they weren't available. Hopefully they can be there for next year.

Popular and Well organised.. Nice flat course, plenty of support (drinks etc.) around the course. Could have done with a few more porta loos though.

A splendid run in all respects.. I would do this again. It helped that the weather was so good but it’s a great course, flat, fast and lots of wide running space. Cheery Marshalls and nothing not to like . I will be back in 2020. Thanks everyone for a great race

Remembrance Run 10k. Lovely flat course with the occasional gentle incline to make you work harder! Super bit of bling at the end too. Last run of the season for me and got a PB and first sub 60 here so it gets top marks!!
