I tried the half marathon route on a lovely sunny day this weekend and the views were stunning!
I know some of the route well but have never tried it all before.... and great fun it was too!
Some of the wooded parts already have a few very muddy sections so that trail shoes with grippy soles will be a great help; although most of the way is either on grass or good trails.
Now I've tried all the climbs I've added half an hour to my target time.... just to admire the views of course

I reckon my Garmin is accurate to about 2% which for 10K means 200 metres.
Sometimes it shows more that the measured distance; sometimes less. Yesterday it showed 9.78 kms which ties in with previous results.
Be proud of your PBs
I didn't spot any ballons MT!
Oh and happy birthday
