In short: Great race, good organisation, v hot In full: This was my 1st time running this race, but I will definitely be back. The only downside was that it was 3 laps and it was v hot, but never got bored just hot! The course was flat, well marshalled, 1 water station per lap and had good support. It had a great atmosphere with plenty of supporters and the animals to keep you company! It is good value as you get free entry into the park. The medal and goody bag had plenty in it (water, banana, pen, pencil, cake). I'll be back. Date of review: May 28, 2012
In short: Great race and although its lapsit was not boring as always different animals to spot. In full: One small point was that the prize giving occurred while still quite a few of the slower runners coming in which meant they got little support and encouragment.Maybe delaying junior race by 15 mins would have helped.Overall great day though and a PB for me too !I will be back next year Date of review: June 18, 2011
In full: Great race - flat course and well organised with precise km markers. 3 laps may not be everyone's cup of tea but when each lap takes you past flamingos and rhinos (plus allow an extra water station) - it works. Chance to make a full day out of it in the zoo afterwards is an added bonus. Weather was good for running - glad it wasn't 'otter'. Date of review: June 5, 2011
In short: Enjoyable great to have the zoo as a different background In full: Well organised, good encouragement for us begginners all the way round. Didn't like the fact it was laps but that's just me.
My only gripe which would have increased my scores was the fact that partners etc had to pay full zoo entry price. I knoe=w they've got to make money but it would have been better to have a half price offer to supportersd etc.
