An amazing friend gave me entry to this race as a birthday present the day I ran my first Parkrun. It seemed a terrifying but exciting prospect. Having trained all year for it it felt both more terrifying and more exciting - I loved every muddy minute of it! The atmosphere from the start was great, the route varied, challenging and beautiful, the marshalls and wonderful sweepers unfailingly cheerful, the medal gorgeous. Can’t wait to do it again (faster!) next year...

This was my first race after only starting to run 5 months ago. Great to have a 5k race as a slightly less daunting option, but still a lot more challenging than a Parkrun.
Stunningly beautiful setting along the coast in St Ives bay with lots of variety in terrain - beach, dunes, cliff path, tarmac path and lots and lots of steps up and down.
The organisation and marshalling were excellent and friendly and the atmosphere throughout was fun and encouraging. Loved every minute!
