In short: First event in my race calendar each year, love it, despite THAT hill. In full: I think this race is spot on & wish there were more like it. The course is challenging but beautiful, scenic. The race itself is friendly with a great atmosphere. A big thanks to the cheery marshals, the organisation is faultless. Reminded me why it's first on my events calendar each year. To top it all it's a bargain, I wish more people would run it to secure it's future. See you next year hopefully!
