Great, well organised, small event
Although the event is on the small side, it still offers both a 5K and a 10K race and the routes are well marshalled.
The 10K however, does mean a second loop of the course which can seem a chore but once you're on it, it's never as bad as you think it's going to be. It's a nice flat race in great scenery and with chocolate at the end.. what more could you ask for :)
