In short: Fantastic Race In full: Canâ€™t rate this high enough for organisation, pre race instructions and communications excellent, on the day, fantastic.
Plenty of friendly Marshalls, nice to see so many young people helping out and being so supportive all along the route.
Itâ€™s amazing and great to see how much the organisers put into this event. All runs should be organised as well as this, it really is a gold standard event. Good facilities and refreshments etc laid on for the waiting spectators too.
Lovely course, even though I struggled a bit myself. Enjoyed the spot prize, a good pair of Asics gloves and as soon as my bottle of beer has cleared I will be downing it in one go!
In short: well organised and marshalled -a recommended race In full: fortunate to have such a beautiful and ideal day weather wise. three coaches ferrying people was good. Plenty of loos :o) some great enthusiastic marshalling/supporters on route. good water/orange stops. chance afterwards for food, hot drinks, and a beer! medal good quality Bottle of local beer a nice change to a trashy cotton t shirt! well done organisers.
