In short: Excellent race day for all the family In full: Had a great day, lots to do for all the family, wife enjoyed the 5k and i thought the 10k was a good route and managed a pb. Great t shirt too. Date of review: June 2, 2014
In short: Excellent 10k race (although the day involves a number of runs for different ages & distances). Very happy to see chip timing & tech-T this year. Conditions very good (17C & light breeze). Good stuff. Date of review: June 2, 2014
In short: Fast race for every type of runner In full: A great day out. Don't understand why the 10k is at 2pm in the hottest part of the day, an early start would be my preference. Very friendly marshals and nice atmosphere. It could be improved by having a technical shirt and I don't like water in cups as they are tough to drink from without slowing down. Very good value for money race though and a great day out in the park. Date of review: June 3, 2013
In short: Great race as Usual! In full: second time i have done this and both times has been the hottest day of the year so far! what can i say, the organisation is superb, marshalls lovely, great race for beginners or top athletes alike, in fact us humble folk were able to rub shoulders with a few international runners this year. the mix of childrens races, 5k and 10k throughout the day, and the carnival atmosphere make it a great day out for all the family. with the weather being as nice as it is, you can take a picnic and stay all day! the only slightly disappointing thing was that the t-shirt was not a technical one as last year, but i guess you can't have everything :-) definitely one to keep coming back to.

In short: A fast race - very hot!!! In full: My only negative would be the cotton t-shirt. I would rather pay more for a technical running shirt. Such a shame as I have lost count of the number of times I have worn the blue technical shirt from last year and I won't wear this year's shirt to run in.
Another point - with such a big field I think chip timing should be used. Date of review: June 2, 2013
In short: Very hot good race again In full: 3rd year back always hot but I think it was to be expected. Crowded at the start but was ok in the end. Only down point was in last years it was a Technical wicking style shirt.This year cotton. I gave mine back. Also heard someone say they ran out of some sizes too which is not good Date of review: June 2, 2013
