In short: First time of runnig "The Beast" & they didn't lie! In full: Excellent organisation throughout, and plenty of encouraging marshalls to guide you around the course - even the slower ones of us!
Weather stayed dry (all but a few spits & spots of drizzle at one point), but when the sun came out, you could feel it.
Very challenging hills (for me) - but makes me want to go back next year and beat this years time
Nice T-shirt & medal, banana, water & bottle of Stella (or bunch of flowers for the ladies.
In short: Great race, excellent organisation - shame about the weather! In full: Having started running earlier this year, needed to set some goals. This was my second event - ever! My first event was a Cancer Research UK 10k in September.
Travelled up on the morning of the race, and expected some traffic problems, but although slow moving, made our way easily onto the common. Organisation throughout seemed to run like clockwork, with friendly stewards/marshals.
Unfortuanetly I was in the green wave (not really knowing my likely time when I entered), but as soon as we set off, soon found myself passing many from the other waves!
Managed to get around in a time I was really happy with, and beating my 10k PB.
OK, the weather could have been better, but that makes me all the more determined to do even better next year! (with better weather!). I considered the £3 parking fee was well worth it - try parking all day for that in many places in Cornwall! Nice goody bag & medal - really had no expectations though as to what to find in it.
Yes, I'll be running this race again next year & it's certainly inspired me to take up running "properly", with entries already being made for some other races next year.
