Victoria Park Half

This was a very well organised race with clear markers on a lapped course for both the half and 10 k races. Well stocked loos with toilet roll and hand sanitizer which is important in the coronavirus times. All in all a low key but straight forward race.

Well organised race, especially considering the current climate

Minimal ques, straight forward bag and number collection. Well organised and nice medal.

A well organised event

The race was organised well with really good communication around the coronavirus. On site registration was easy and the course marshalls were excellent giving clear instruction and much vitally needed encouragement. Would book again
