Slow runner alert. My first run-through event at Victoria park last night and it was so well organised. All the Marshall's were super supportive and helpful, especially as I was so slow!! Would love to book another race soon!

It was well organised....but the run wasn’t great. Victoria Park isn’t easy to get to, and the run itself in the rain was good because it kept me cool, was very boring. You effectively ran around an avenue of trees and there was little else to do. I was happy with my time (don’t get me wrong), but did not enjoy the race itself.
