Great run. Thank you for organising a great run in a great venue. I’m not a fan of laps but this was good. Just a shame that fast runners make us slower runners feel in the way! I kept to the left, (which in the end made me run further than 10km)the whole time but still had people weaving in about out by me. Also there where some great official supporters and I was very grateful for most of them as I was one of the last to finish. Some however made you feel like you had taken too long. Understand it was cold and wet for them but a smile couldn’t hurt. I did however have a great time and will look to book on another event Cheers

Such a welcoming 1st Time Event. This was the first race I'd taken part in as an adult. I was a little nervous about how the whole thing was going to happen, but everyone who was there helping out on the day was incredible helpful and reassuring. I can't wait to sign up for my next race :)

Wonderful. An absolutely wonderful event. Well organised in a lovely venue with really supportive stewards the whole way round. One of my favourite runs. There is something so liberating about running at night!

Great atmosphere and motivating staff. Wonderful event. What made it special is the woman on the microphone was very energetic and welcoming to all the runners arriving to the park. She was motivating, funny and full of energy. The bag drop staff were lovely and the warm up was good. I love how your name gets called out over the finish line and that there are always photos of you running. The supportive atmosphere is the best thing about these events. Thank you!
