Very well organised

The event was very well organised and met all social distancing rules. I felt safe and at the same time enjoyed the experience.

Fantastic Marshals

The race was very well organised and all the marshals were so very helpful from arriving at the venue until the finish.
Many thanks to all.

Well organised, nice atmosphere and good for PBS!

I did the 10 mile and really enjoyed the track. It was undulating with small hills but this helped to keep it varied and interesting. It was well organised and I’d recommend it to everyone!

Very well organised half marathon!

Brilliant race. Was dreading 13 laps of the same track but it was really well organised which made the run great. I also beat my PB. And special shout out to delicious home made flap jacks at the end.

Half marathon

I was very disappointed that my time was not recorded on the results page for some reason? I felt it was not clear where we went at the end of the race? I presumed passed the finish line but maybe I had to go past the start line to record when I had finished? Either it wasn’t made clear prior to the race and therefore never got my time.
