What was the route like? Flat as a pancake.
Were headphones allowed? Yes
Parking was a dream, but we did get there early before roads closed. I heard others who arrived a little later had a few more problems.
The check in was easy. I bought a t-shirt in advance and was surprised to receive it on registration. Had I known, I’d have worn this on the day. Warm, indoor waiting area with a few running stalls and café. Loads of toilets too, so hardly any queues!
There was a bag drop, although I didn’t use it as the queues were big. The £1 fee went to charity.
The race itself was very well organised. The route was flat with a small hill around mile 5 (nothing to worry about though).
I loved running through the town. The shops were open and some shop staff were out supporting. There was also street entertainment, jugglers, stilt walkers, human statues, which I loved.
One water station around 5k.
We’d given ourselves horsey names for this race as it was from the race course. Not sure why as it wasn’t used in anyway. They would have been fab printed on the race number.
Nice medal, porkpie and hot chocolate on completion.
Would I do it again? Absolutely! Loved every minute of it.
