Great for spectators

My husband, who takes my jacket at the start then looks for somewhere to shelter while I run, pronounced Oulton Park the best venue yet. Parking was easy and close, efficiently directed by the venue staff. Portaloos were plentiful and clean. Best of all, the venue cafe was open: bacon butties, coffee, somewhere to sit indoors, proper toilets. Luxury!
I did the 10k and was really impressed with the organisation, the friendly and encouraging staff, the brilliant medal and t-shirt and the range of goodies. The hilly sections were an unexpected challenge, but I ran a pb, so not complaining.

Fab, fun and friendly

This was first ever 5k event and it didn't disappointment. Communication from the venue was fantastic. It was really well organised and easy to find where I had to be and what I had to do. Everywhere was clean and all the staff helpful and friendly. Great encouragement as I ran round and was made to feel motivated.

Windy day 10k at Oulton Park

Super event....lots of encouragement from marshals. All staff super friendly and running facility of track challenging enough...

St David's Day Dash

What a great way to start the month, a really well organised event, really handy to have water and gels available (for free) on every lap of the race, plenty of marshals to guide you around the course and to encourage you when the going got tough, great facilities on the site too for the spectators, nice looking medal and t-shirt for the finishers and lots of freebies on offer post race, would definitely recommend doing this event.

Well organised event, hilly course!

My first 10K and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well organised, especially given multiple distances out on the course at the same time. I found it hillier than expected and with Storm Jorge’s winds on the day it was tough going on some parts of the course. Fab medal and flapjack, so definitely worth the effort!

Good event, nice smooth course

Well planned out, only problem was the marathoners were left finishing with people packing up and having to ask for a drink, t shirt etc.
I imagine for the shorter events the atmosphere was great. Considering the marathon entry cost the most it was a little disappointing at the end.
Great commentary in the pit lane throughout though, course never felt crowded either
