Fantastic local race. Well supported. Option of 5km and 10km means there is something for everyone. Fast, flat course offering PB potential. Great medal and prizes. Will definitely be back next year!!!

Very well organised event. All Marshall's were very well informed and offered encouragement during the race. I cannot fault this event, well worth the 5hr drive for a 10k PB
