Great race, friendly and well organised

Any other notes?

Thank you for a wonderful race yesterday. Well-organised (including road closures, thank you!) and well signed. Enthusiastic marshalls. Friendly from the moment we arrived to pick up our race bibs. Great bling handed out by cute kiddies. And a collection for the local animal charity. I think all of these feel-good factors contributed to me getting a 1-minute 18-seconds PB for the 10k, at the age of 46 and with one bum knee! Thank you!

Lovely race, good scenery and the hills just keep coming. The lovely medal/drinks/jelly babies team we so cute and did a smashing job. Great medal. Well organised. Thank you for the road closures, there were very few cars that actually went past me. Marshalls did a great job, and the two with pom poms added to the fun! Also a big thank you to letting me run as I was late entering and you opened up some more entries. See you next year!

Good undulating course

Any other notes?

Would prefer canicross runners not to be included in results as they have unfair advantage of being towed forward by strong dogs on body harnesses & some dogs cut in front of you while running

Lovely event. My first 10K. The hills are definitely not friendly for beginners but the atmosphere was brill and the marshalls were great at cheering us on. Really proud of my achievements and enjoyed the experience.

Any other notes?

Well organised, could possibly do with another toilet at the start as I queued for 15mins and there was a large queue behind me near the start time.
Nice location with the walk through the woods before the start. Race was undulating, there was more than enough space on the roads to accommodate the number of runners. Lots of marshals and signage was perfect.
Very accommodating to new runners and a nice atmosphere.

Any other notes?

I thought the event was well marshal'd, but the course caught me out a little as it was hillier than I expected but nice weather helped and the motorist played their part respecting the runners throughout, all in all an enjoyable experience thank you

Any other notes?

Participants need to be told to park considerately-some v selfish parking such that space was wasted,might also be worth saying people need to bring cash/cost of parking-your may have done this but I missed it! Good experience in general

More toilets if possible. Had to go au naturel as the queue was so big I thought I'd miss the start of the race!
