This was my first Run Gatwick and what an experience. Great organisation and crowd. The route has a beautiful scenery and seeing the planes taking off and landing makes it even more exciting. One of the best races I've been too.

Brilliant race overall, well organised and especially the uniqueness of the event being so close to one of Europe’s busiest airports.

It was class running next to a runway and seeing the planes come in and take off. Incredibly scenic route also.
