In short: Great event, don't miss out next year!!! In full: The overall event was really very good and an absolute pleasure to run in. It is a tough course with a brutal hill at around the 10 mile mark plus a very hot day so PB hopes are very limited but the mix of countryside and town running gave for a great route in compensation.
The atmosphere of the race is reason enough to do it with spectators for nearly all 13 miles and a few generous hosepipes which were extremely welcome!! Water stations were well placed in my opinion, i'd say one every 2 or 3 miles and 3 in the last 3 miles. Some stations had sponges too.
It's a rewarding course to get round so i'd say beginners should give it ago just do some hill training!
Bargain due to great route, generous goodie bag and buzzing atmosphere.
Well done to everyone who competed and a special thanks to all of the stewards and volunteers who made it all possible. Same again next year please!!!!!!!
