Comment from 2014 on Runners World
Great 10K race not too hilly, but ideal for beginners and those wanting a personal best. The goody bag was great; medal, banana, water, whole packet of digestives and a large packet of jelly babies - how generous. Parking was great and so was the atmosphere and organization. Well done
