In short: A downhill marathon with the wind behind you all the way. In full: I don't know why people do not rate thos course for a PB. It is downhill and the prevailing wind is behind you. Add beautiful weather for running and it was a fast course yesterday.
Not sure how they managed to get the buses wrong, but some people on my bus (Fort Augustus) ended up walking up a mountain before the race started; not ideal preparation.
Otherwise a great day with great facilities at the finish and an appreciative crowd. Date of review: October 5, 2009
