In short: It is a feel good run, worth it running with family or friends In full: I didn't know what to expect but everything was fantastic, the downside was that I went alone and I didn't have as much fun as I had liked. The organization was ok for the ones who finished under half an hour after that I could see big queues for medals and water, but a great race overall Date of review: December 7, 2009
In short: Brilliantly festive! In full: Great organisation and such a fab way to raise money for a good cause. Santa suit - one size fits all - was hilarious if not a bit sweaty... But overall, really good atmosphere and wicked fun! Date of review: December 7, 2009
In short: Brilliant seasonal fun run In full: If you don't take this hardcore seriously (how can you be serious mixing it up with 2000+ Santa's!), this is a great little race - well organised, superb warm up/down ladies, and a cracking atmosphere; guaranteed to get you in the festive spirit. It would have been better if the people handing out the medals stood back a bit from the finish gates as it caused a bottle-neck at the end, but otherwise the organisers did a great job and once you had your number collecting your chip and outfit, changing and depositing your bag was easy.
The course is such that a PB could be easily achieved, but doing it in a Santa suit definitely heats you up and slows you down. This is one to do for the fun and festivities (we took along a now converted non-runner) and raise money for a good cause, not because you're a hardened athlete in search of challenging professional race.

In short: Well organised,well marshalled, fantastic crowd support. in places In full: Very strange to see over 2000 santas running around the park which made it the fun event it was ment to be. The organisation was spot on as getting the timing chips and santa suits was very quick well done to all involved. Date of review: December 6, 2009
