The route for the most part of this race is quite uninteresting, around local streets, but the main draw is that it starts and finishes at the Royal Air Force Museum, and entry was included in the race purchase.

The event village was crowded at the museum, but the marshals were very adept at herding the runners and their families towards the open spaces, instead of letting them congregate around the exhibits before the race start.

It was a very hot run with little cover, but water was provided at the start, mid race and at the finish. I liked the medal - if you wanted a race t-shirt this was available to purchase separately. Once the race had finished, participants were free to browse the museum at their leisure.

The car park charges were free for participants, but the system for waiving the automatic charge was very confusing and there were large queues of people waiting to leave as a result - my only gripe on the day.

All in all, a nice little 10k, with something a little different about it!
