Here is one of the emails we had about the event.



To everyone involved with last nights event I would just like to say a huge thank you. Incredibly well organised and a great course. The atmosphere was just wonderful. All of my 4 kids loved it [too young to run at the moment] and the end bit is a brilliant way for the families to watch a bit of running - even if it it did nearly kill me [blew up with about 200m to go]!!!!


You could teach the National Relays a thing or two about how to stage a proper meeting.


Long live this kind of racing.


Thanks again,





Again a very successful evening on Wednesday 19th June.


 We have ask FR Systems for the results.
