Bit of a shaky start with poor organisation and lack of assistance with how to get to the start line. However, after the race had started it was very smooth and a fun and enjoyable day out for all the family. Good facilities throughout the park on the day with plenty of clean loos.

An enjoyable and well organised event. The marshals were friendly, helpful and supportive.

What an event. Such a fun day, entry to theme park with no queue for rides was a good incentive to get around!! The course itself was a bit mundane with the car park laps, and the signs for mileage were absent at times or seemed inaccurate. Pacers would have been useful to follow to keep time. Water stations could have had some sort of energy boost with water - Shrewsbury half provided glucose supplement by a sponsor.
