Aid Table: We have a fantastic aid table and drinks table at the start / finish of each lap. There is a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan items at the aid table.

Very welcoming atmosphere and definitely didn’t feel as ‘racey’ as other events, which I enjoyed. Great spread afterwards and awesome medals also! My only criticism would be traffic on the course due to non-runners and the looped nature of the course. Overall, great job guys well done.
