A great place to run

The rain and puddles can't spoil a run in this great location, it's a lovely place. This event was well organised and the marshals were great. The only issue was the start /finish location which caused a huge bottle neck to start the race and meant running up and down a wet muddy hill rather than staying on the paved road. This seemed to be a very odd choice to me.

Nice race, lovely location, could be better organised

Really really lovely location, the weather wasn't great ( but what do you expect in October in England!!) but running around the lake having nature all around was really nice, so peaceful and pretty.
Not the most organised start to the race, everyone was huddled under trees to hide from the rain, including spectators with umbrellas and prams, and someone was shouting some instructions that we couldn't hear as there was no megaphone or microphone. Someone did ride up on a bike and yell something about starting in the wrong direction, but didn't explain well that we had to move, and then we started from the back and were faster than a lot of people so got stuck in a tight bottle neck. Would have been good to have clear instructions from the start, a runners start area (clear of spectators and prams and dogs), and a staggered start.
The rest of the race was lovely, well marshalled with first aid people. My only other grievance was that the finish line was so muddy and slippy you had to slow down a lot to avoid falling which was disappointing.
Great venue and I would definitely do again if the start and end were more organised!!

First Event

A really good location being a first timer, nice flat course ( would be nicer in the dry, ) large puddles and wet grass were a hinderance.
Well marshalled throughout with first aid en route.
Start was a bit chaotic, through a tight funnel, which was hampered by spectators sheltering from rain. Runners should have had a segregated area.
There was a Race briefing but as there was no mega phone it was hard to follow, some runners were questioning the direction of the race due to poor comms.
Overall though a enjoyable experience for my first one
