Easy to book and a reasonable price for a 10k. Regular Facebook updates and emails in the lead up to the race kept runners fully informed, particularly with the local flooding and change of race finish location. 

Council parking is free on Sundays in Winchester and there’s loads of spaces. The race hq at the leisure centre had adequate toilets and changing facilities. There was a bag drop at the start line operated by a local charity for £1 donation, which worked well last year but I didn’t need this time. 

The race started about 10 mins late due to a late change in the route, again due to recent weather conditions, and there were tannoy announcements.

The route through the centre first then on local roads, undulates, has character and good support from residents, and the marshals were friendly and enthusiastic. 

After collecting a medal, runners were given paper bags with handles, which were needed for the t-shirt, drink, banana, two bars and free sample of Ariel. All the goodies!

Nice medal themed around King Arthur’s table at Winchester’s Great Hall, and a nice technical shirt. It’s the second year in a row I’ve run this and would come back to do it again.
