This is a great run that really improves on last years good start. There are lots of crowds, there’s not too much beauty to the 5k but you do run up the Historic old High street and it’s a great route to get a PB!

A well organised race and a good event village with everything you need from beer to burgers. Well supported by locals and the airport staff. Great running at the back of the runway with the rocky theme belting out from a security van. Aid stations were good to.
