I made use of the personal drinks area, as it was on a track looped course this proved really helpful ! Great biscuits, jelly babies, hula hoops and cliff shot blocks on the drinks station and really helpful volunteers. I think the organisers really had thought of everything! Including multicolour wrist bands to discard after each lap!
Very fortunate last minute place i will Definitely coming back next year to smash the course as I hadn't trained this yr! Oooops!
Great venue too, and as daunting as it seems having the race innerspring lap you multiple times I found it quite inspiring to see them peeling past and running past people again and gain really gives you a sense of togetherness that added to the friendliness and overall quality race experience.
In short: Oh what a race! The sun cooked me this year though! In full: Love this race, 10 minutes slower than last year despite being fitter and stronger the sun zapped me before the hills did! Highly recommended (the race not running in 25 degrees thats just silly!) Date of review: May 24, 2009
