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.

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

Needs some improvement. The course itself wasn't communicated well on the day (different people saying different things). Mile markers missing at 11 miles and 12 miles, which was quite unhelpful.

Well organised and good for pacing.. The route was well explained, it's easy to pace yourself with the laps. It's very flat too, good for PB's.
