Well organised and friendly atmosphere. nice course which varied from grass to footpath to pavement back to grass for the finish (the downhill finish was welcomed!) There were plenty of marshalls along the route and loads of km markers and arrows pointing us in the right direction Everything was well organised from the collection of race numbers and bag drop through to the finish where we were handed a much needed drink and snack.

Very well organised event but hilly. Really enjoyed this one, good route, marshalled well, just a couple of hills which were really painful, particularly the one in King George Park which was mean! Good spectator points aswell!

Def worth a run. Good venue. Parking got busy but managed. Big open field BBQ on the go music. Weather was good for running nice route quiet roads mixture of hills with one in the park a challenge. A nice run, free t-shirt bright yellow great for road running and nice medal. Worth taking part if you get the chance
