In short: This year it was HOT! That is what I am blaming my slightly slower time on but absolutely loved the event. In full: From arrival we were welcomed by an enthusiastic team and from my point of view everything went without a hitch.
I would recommend this to the first timer as well as to seasoned runners. It would be great if there was more than one a year! Date of review: May 30, 2012
In short: An expensive but good 10k with zoo entry/day out included in the price In full: A good run. Quite expensive for just the 3-lap 10k, but if you are planning to stay after for a day out at the zoo after then it is a very good day. Chip timing was good, and just needs to add a cyclist to lead the first runner through all the slower runners who are being lapped and avoid getting in each others way! Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: Could not ask for anything more in a race In full: Fabulous day out. Well organised and a great medal at the end. Taking into account normal car park charges and zoo entry costs the 10k itself was actually free to enter. Date of review: May 28, 2012

In short: Great race - and fabulous to run alongside wallabies! In full: A very hot day, but plenty of water to cool down. Lovely to run in the zoo, but pricey for spectators. Definitely one to do again. Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: A superb race in an excellant location In full: The race entry fee was great value since it included a trip to the zoo for the day :-) Lovely scenery and I've never run past rhinos before. We even got to see the otters being fed before the race started! A great fun race to bring the family to. Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: Great race, will be back for more. In full: First time I'd done this one and really enjoyed it. It was hot but there was a cool breeze, some lovely views and some animals to boot. It's pretty stress free with no roads to cross, plenty of room to overtake and tarmac all the way. With 3 laps you could drink or throw water over yourself at regular intervals- appreciated on such a hot day. A bit pricey entry and your spectators have to pay too, but I'll be back for more.
