In short: gorgeous scenery with the city skyline in full view, quite hilly in places which could hamper PB attempts. In full: Great place to run in, well stewarded and very friendly organisers. I think Nice-Work arrange these races very well. Terrain varied from gravel (mainly), paths (where you get the city view) and grass (for the last half kilometre or so).

In short: Good location, beautiful weather, lovely course director, good intentions. In full: As one of the last dozen I had more space than most (a good thing) plus it was a beautiful cold sunny day and a scenic location.
On the negative side, the marshals were not great. My 'hello' was ignored repeatedly by those on the outer corners of the park (7km and 8 or 9km). Their marker signs have fallen over and i) being certain of my location and ii) a friendly nod or maybe even a hint of encouragement would've been appreciated. Also, at one point a marshal, who saw us coming, didn't think to ask the collection of people, dogs, prams and kids he was chatting to to move until the very last minute meaning that we had to squeeze through - not really very helpful on your second lap.
Having said that, and as per the one-line summary, the course director couldn't have been more helpful and the registration and refreshments team afterwards were excellent. Date of review: January 12, 2015
