“The race is always a great way to end the year and we were sold out early again this year, which shows just how popular the event is.

“I’d like to thank all the volunteers who made the race possible, a lot of hard work goes into organising the event, behind the scenes, so it is nice when people are saying how much they enjoyed it.”
