This is my first Run Through event and it didn't disappoint. I signed up with a discount code for 10% off so it was less than £20.

I was too late to have my race pack emailed so I picked dit up on the day, which was very quick and easy. Unfortunately I didn't realise that I had been given the wrong bin and my results were wrong at the end but it's in the process of being sorted by the very helpful Run Through team

The covid rules were clear throughout and the start was great in waves of 4 leaving every 10 seconds. The course was wide enough in most places to be able to stay distant from other runners and the majority of people stuck to the rules.

It's a great venue for a run and I'd definitely consider coming back for another event in the future. 

Only one s negative was that the marshals out in the far reaches of the route were very quiet, didn't clap or encourage you but just sat on the floor but at least they were there if there was a problem.
