I thoroughly enjoyed the 10k race and it is my second time joining this event. I will be returning next year definitely for the 10 year celebrations. I felt very proud to finish and was made to feel this was a really great achievement. Eleanor W

This event continues to grow itself and the wider running community. Its a real pleasure to take part in and be associated with. You should be proud of yourselves. 10 years on next year and I still look forward to it as much as the first one. I particularly like the amends of the course as you've responded to changes where it hasn't been it's best. That is appreciated. Well done all. Ian W

Great atmosphere all the way round the crowd was great, the scenary a perfect mix of greenery, rivers and excitement of the city. Would definitely do it again. Gemma M

One of my favourite race courses. I have done both the 1/2 marathon and 10k and recommend to everyone who wants an enjoyable/well supported flat course. Paul T

The whole weekend building up the race was fantastic, it really got the whole community excited for it, which was very apparent by the amazing support along the route. Peter C
