Well organised, fun event

This race was one of the best organised events I took part this year. The volunteers cheered us on - I ran a 5k, the way was clearly marked. I really enjoyed myself - thank you

Very well organised, though I got a bit confused!

Getting to the event, checking in, storing my bag, all seamless and brilliant. As my second half marathon, without a GPS watch, once running I lost track of the distance covered given we were running in laps (also because we merged in with the 5km & 10km). Thankfully, we were told once we have passed the water station 7 times, we were to veer into the home stretch... but the first time I passed the water station nothing was laid out, so I wasn't sure if that was an official Pass Number 1! Anyway, I got there in the end, but I feel the laps or distances covered could have been better labelled!

First ever Half Marathon

I have never been to Victoria Park before and have never entered a Half Marathon before so I felt very nervous, but there was no need. The park, weather, organisers and other runners were perfect. It was a great day out and although I am still aching from it, I’m still smiling as it’s a reminder of the achievement I’ve made. Looking forward to the next one (not for a couple of months though 😊)!

First ever 10k run

Very well organised and the perfect course for a first ever 10k run. Very flat which helped!

Good Race!

Well organised, the volunteers were great cheering the runners on.

Excellent experience

This was both my first experience with run-through and my first half marathon in England after living for many years in weird and wonderful places across Eastern Europe. I have to say I was delighted with everything. I had to change my date and location-no problem. I needed early information about check in times and storage for personal belongings-no problem. On the day? Everything was perfectly organised, and what a team of volunteers; they made sure that everything went well. Thank you, I'll be back!
