In short: Excellent organisation makes this one a bit special. In full: Friendly marshals and organisers really do make a big difference in my opinion. Positive encouragement was everywhere.
Facilities were excellent at Congleton High School with changing and showers and even massage on offer.
Course is challenging in parts but The Sting is only about 300m and so doesn't last forever. Pity it's at the 12 mile marker though! The early start makes for little trafic on rural sections which is always well received.
A T-Shirt that actually fits rounded off the perfect day!
Well done and thanks very much to Congleton Harriers and Congleton Lions. See you next year.
In short: well worth a go. In full: well organised event and very well marshalled . scenic route thru country lanes with the aptly named "sting " at around the 12 mile mark.will be back next year. Date of review: October 9, 2005
