In short: The Orme! In full: The course makes this race, it's a beautiful route, even takes your mind off the long long climb of the Orme.
No queues for t shirts or medals this year, big improvement. My only gripe was spectators being allowed to stand just behind the finish line, very difficult for exhausted runners. A proper finish funnel would be the next improvement, perhaps incorporating a one way system to take people leaving the race off the quayside so they aren't walking through the finishers?
