Average at best.
Not even an official start line.
I was told we would be doing two laps, ended up doing three laps to get in the 10KM.
Medal and Tshirt were laughable.
Potential to be much better
The organisation was lacking and let down what has the potential to be a fantastic event to make Southampton proud. There was no clear start line, a lot of second guessing what was going on, few marshalls, little to no marking, or directing runners to the finish line. Thankfully a number of spectators stepped in to the rescue of a visibly overwhelmed race director.
Cheap medal and t-shirt were provided, not really worth the money.
