In short: Cold and slippy. My first race (so rated accordingly as I dont know any better!) In full: A beautiful location, made more so by snow and ice covering the ground! My first ever race and Id hoped would have a "fun run" atmosphere, but most people seemed quite serious. I think this pushed me on though as I managed to finish in less than an hour, despite the big slow hill that killed me!
I didnt think 1hr was that slow - but by the time me and the remaining 3 finshed, everyone had pretty much gone home - so a bit of an anticlimax for my first finish line.
Anyway. I shall definately be doing it next year. The organisation of the race seemed good and the marshalls were encouraging and friendly. Date of review: December 28, 2009
