To be honest i loved this race because its fast its flat and its in a lovely area. My issues are the parking and control of the event.
I thought safety wise it can be a nightmare for slower runners, the runners that finished fast would begin to drive home along the path/road the runners were stilll racing on, not good and can be dangerous.
The parking if raining can be a nightmare hundreds of cars on a farmers field churning up the mud, if you have a rear wheel drive car you will be lucky to get out, the mud will also continue all around the start and finish if raining. I could imagine the race to be lovely on a nice sunny day, but you cant predict the weather unfortuently.
The route you run along is excellent and one of the best i have done, very flat and fast and one for your pb.
Unfortuently the medal is not so good and the T Shirt was white cotton? No technical shirt, you do get a banana though.
I will return to this race mainly for the course as its excellent

Definitely a course for a PB. If you're looking for a quick time, you can definitely do it here.
The medal you get is nice and setting at the start and finish is also good. The parking can be a bit of a nightmare and I ended up parking on the road.
Nice event overall and I'll be back on November 2017!

A pretty basic course but is held in the beautiful surroundings of Arley Hall and Gardens. Yes albeit only the start and finish reside here the villages and closed country roads are good to race on.
Wasn't overly expensive and very easy to navigate. Parking was very local and there was minimal queues on leaving. Well worth it for the beginner and those looking for good times.
