The Hullavington 'Secret Santa' 10 was a low key, low profile event run by a local event organizer. The race was a sell-out in 2019 so a full field of 200 runners lined up for the race.

The organisers had kept everyone updated on the Facebook event page beforehand with parking and pre-race info and the registration process was fairly straightforward, although nothing special.

The race-briefing was done just before the start and with some humor which was good. The route was through the spectacular and fairly quiet Wiltshire countryside, following a more undulating route through the lanes than I was expecting.

The marshal support was great and the water stops in convenient locations. The 'lucky-dip' at the end was a nice touch, but given the entry cost, I feel a better medal (for all runners, not just a few) would have been good. 

If you're looking for a low-key event run without any of the fuss and mayhem of a larger event, this is it.
