Not well organised event

I participated on 10k winter warmer run in Willen Lake, Milton Keynes. I didn't enjoy race as much I expected, the main problem was the lack of organisation.
We were almost 800 people who took place on both races 5k and 10k. People who organised event decided to set start for both races the same time. That was a bad idea because race path at the beggining was narrow and I was struggle to run for the first two kilometres. I forced to stop over three times because people in front of me blocked the path.
Also some people who booked 5k wanted to walk and not run, was dificult to overtake them too.
It was very bad idea set start on the same time for all the participants.
They would rather separate people on three different groups with ten or five minutes difference.
Because of the numbers of the people and the limited space, I couldn't perform very well and didn't enjoy race.
I will not participate again and will not recommend this event to other runners.

Organiser skimping on costs ?

For an event that must have grossed £14k the organiser appeared to not have invested enough back in . Shamobilc registration process apparently due to a lack of
Staff meant the event barely got underway on time. A poor quality
Generic medal that didn't relate to the race so will have cost pennies and minimal goodies. Let's hope at least their nominated charity was given a few thousand from the proceeds. We weren't impressed.

Great event - well organised, great fun, up to date info and amazing support. Horrendous weather all added to the experience and surprisingly made it even more fun! Thanks to all involved :)

Good event, nice run around the lake

The weather was awful (storm Dennis) on the day of this event, but it was organised so well and the staff were cheering us on and the MC lady was positive and had a great attitude.

A great well organised event.

Fair play to the fix events team for organising a great event in such terrible conditions. Probably one of the best races I have attended, such a laugh.

Many thanks
