Professionally run event. Fast 10K, set new PB, just under the hour, very pleased. Well organised, over 4,500 runners in the 3 main formats - 5K + 10K + Half Marathon Enjoyed.

Amazing Race 5 Star. Well organised. Pre-Race information passed in good time. Reminded of important details on the day. Parking easy. Toilets were plentiful at the start and on course. Number sign in and bag drop off easy. Very busy with runners. No confusion despite multiple races going on at once. Support from crowd sparse (Only twice over 13.1mi) so maybe pass more information to supporters on how and where to go to cheer. Post-race snacks and shirts were great and medics in hand too. Easy to get out at the end too.

A real grandstand event. Good points: Parking was slick and easy. Very well organised race. Picking up number was simple. LOADS of toilets at the start, and on the course. Almost entirely flat (relatively) course, so obvious PB potential. Well marshalled. Well supported - singers and a steel pan band on the way round! Good presence of medics as well. More than enough water (and free gels!) stations. Impressed just how many post run snacks we available too. Could be improved: Separate medals for each distance. Spoke to other competitors, and agreed that at least 2 of the pacers may well have just guessed their timings. Mistakes happen but if someone is selected as a pacer, they should be able to maintain the right pace for the duration of the event.

Silverstone 10k. Had a fabulous first 10k race at Silverstone! Had to do it there as I'm F1 biggest fan! Very well organised by all. Though being handed freebies on the finish line could of been better as nothing to carry them all in. So maybe bag all items up next year so easy enough to carry! Other than that. Loved it
