“Very nice event - Lots of appreciation for the organizers and volunteers. A big minus was the large amount of children (or their parents to push them) taking short cuts which I witnessed myself while joining my daughter in kidsrun. Sad for children who ran correctly and miss a well deserved medal or price.”
“A much improved course - The course was much better than the previous years - no sharp U turns. It was also great to see so many children taking part. I'm not sure about the water stations. Since we were running on smooth tiles, there was an expectation at the water stations to actually stop running and take the drink to avoid spills and making the area slippery.”
“Good event - well organised - Liked the different layout this year, running longer straights around the exhibition centre rather than lots of short twisting corners.
Staff were helpful and well organised. Just get staff to remind people about getting a timing chip, a few people had to go back as didnt realise they were collected from another table. The registration people didnt say where to go to get the chip so some people just walked out after registering. But not a major issue
Results website was clear this year :)
“Great as per normal - A really nice event and fantastically supported by the Aloft et. al. Course was great (nice to be running in the cool) in the middle of the day and the marshals were terrific. Felt for lone marshal in the large hall and the lasses down the far end must have been horse at the end of day for all there cheers when people ran/walked/crawled past.
Well done and all for a good cause!”
“Keeps getting better! - It was great to have such a big turnout for the kids, especially as there aren't enough races that encourage young ones to participate, while keeping it safe. Great that the kids got medals as that's what they love (us too!). A shame the turnout for the 10k decreased.
Route this year much better than the last few years, with more light and less sharp turns and back & forth lengths.
Generally, a great beginning of the season race, sheltered from the September heat & humidity! ”
“Good route change - Nice to have different route. Lots of kids which was good. Timing didn't work so well - worth moving to championchip? ”
“Enjoyable event. - The winners were not informed to stay back for the awarding ceremony which was conducted later in the evening.”
“Good incentives for kids to run - A very good effort organised the run for the kids as a way for a healthier life in the future. Maybe a more fun event if the organiser provided the medal for all the participants as a way of appreciation and as a souvenier in particapate in this event.
overall, a 5 star for this event :)”
“Ok - The race was fine, the organisation could be better particularly on time control and results sheet.”
“Very nice event i like it very much and thanks. - Nice event.”
“The run was fine; the organisation could be better - The course layout was perfect; no complaints at all.
Pre-event communication was sparse. It took too long for race timings to be released. Many runners seemed to have a "goody bag"; I was not offered and did not receive anything.
All that being said I would participate again in this event.”
“Good race overall - Poor signage along the route and delayed start. ”
