In short: Good country road run, nice route. In full: Local race for me, lovely scenery although a little less inspiring than usual due to recent weather. Nice picturesque route if the sun is shining and the wildlife hasn't been half drowned and frozen in the weeks before hand!
I can't relate to the comments about organisation, I thought the joining instructions and further direction about parking etc were very clear. I can only think that some people didn't give themselves enough time to get ready and get to the start.
See you next year when it will hopefully be a bit warmer! Date of review: February 4, 2013
