In short: Nice day out In full: If you have young kids definitely go, as there is a nice fancy dress fun walk and other activities. It gives the kiddies a chance to have a nice 3km run/walk whist you can have a nice race in the 10km. I cracked myself as I watched one kid push his mate in a wheel borrow on the 3 km run. The race was a multi lap run, consisting of 3 Laps (not one lap as stated on Runners World). I preferred this option as gave me a chance to judge my speed for the last two laps. If you are a beginner runner, I believe this is ideal as you can judge if your speed for the last two laps. I am very, very impressed at the speed of the results where published (next day on web). Note this is not run by a professional race club, but then again that is some of the attraction of the run. In the end for the day I had I would give it a five out of five, you may not get your personal best (but then do you need to).
