|Foggy castle grounds|
|Channelling my inner Braveheart|
|Enthusiastic paint throwers|
|Event the flowers seemed to want in on the action|
|Particularly unflattering post-run photo|
I wandered back to the car, with mixed feelings. I'd enjoyed the experience, despite not being able to see the castle, but I felt unsure that it was worth the money. I'd have felt more comfortable with a £5 parking fee, and I'm aware that some of the entry fee goes towards Help for Heroes but still... it's not a cheap event. Fun for the kids, and groups who are newer to running, but next time I'll rack up another parkrun instead.
