In short: Scenic and good first 10k In full: This was my first 10k race and having done a few of the 5k Parkruns that partly run along the same route, I kind of knew what to expect.
On a mixed surface of generally well metalled footpaths, it is flat for large periods with a few undulating sections and one beast of an incline which comes after about 4 miles but is very short. The downhill for the last mile or so is very welcoming!
The organisation was very good. Not bad for spectators as you can head up some of the tracks and paths yourselves but if you want to watch the runners, there's only really the start and finish areas which the runners also pass at around 2 miles.
The timing is manual but based on my GPS watch they were pretty spot on. The goodies at the end consist of a t-shirt and a water bottle but no medal.
Overall a very well run event on a scenic trail that is challenging in places but generally good for all levels. Date of review: September 16, 2012
