In short: A good one - pleasant, flat to gently rolling course, well-organised. In full: A very good race! The initial three-mile loop around the base is a nice, wide track - plenty of room to navigate around the usual early-race mash-up. Then ten miles of mostly flat, scenic running through villages and fields, with lots of support from marshals and residents. A decent climb around mile 9 is a good challenge, and then it's downhill to flat for the last the 3 - definitely a good race for PBs.
This was a very warm morning, but there was plenty of water available throughout and at the finish. Could've used a few more toilets (but honestly, there's never a race that couldn't use more). Date of review: June 13, 2012
