In short: Well organised, lovely surroundings, and made a first timer like me very content. In full: The atmosphere is comfortably relaxed. Well organised parking, easy access loos (thanks to the sports centre).
The run was along easy paths with some gentle climbs at the turn-around point. The occasional bridge crossings tested my resolve on the way back but the incredibly enthusiastic marshals made the time pass more quickly and lifted the spirits when the body started to complain.
More training and next year's run should be another good memory. Thanks again to all involved. Date of review: March 23, 2009
