A well organised event
Thank you for giving your time up especially during the a Christmas season
My first race!
Not the most scenic of routes......
That said, the marshalls were very clear with instructions and always had encouragement to throw at us. And (despite the only serious - thankfully fairly short - uphill being in the last km) it was the best run in terms of time / not needing walk breaks I've done all year.
Love my reindeer medal.
Will I do it again? Possibly, as it was a struggle to find a 10k in December that was local-ish to home on a non-working day. But I don't often have Boxing Day free, and won't be trying to re-arrange other things to get to this if I have other options to try out.
