Excellent organisation and a great atmosphere! Everyone I met today had a great time. Really good running conditions helped! My first 10km run and a great experience. I’ll be there next year for sure!! Thank you! Richard C

Loved this run! I had an awesome pacer who smiled a lot!! Definitely worth the entry fee if you want to run with a pacer and get a gody bag at the end. Leila

Awesome race. Probably best atmosphere I’ve been at. Superb marshalling and so typical Leicester - fun and inclusive. Thank you. Andrew M

Finish line area is great when you're approaching, busy and plenty of photographers, and they shout your name and time out as you cross the line - well as best they can! Nice medal, tech tee and a selection of goodies in the bag. Leanne S

Brilliant event! It was my first time running this and I will definitely be back. The marshalls were excellent and there were a lot of them! The run is inclusive for all abilities and the route (apart from the hill at the start!) was very enjoyable. A great medal and t shirt at the end. Angela S
