That is the hardest marathon distance event that I have ever done. It was harder than some of the ultras that I have done, and it handed me a PW. Beautiful beautiful course, that took in most of the biggest hills in the area, and really went over the rooftop of the county. Nice cake at the checkpoints, and good organisation as you expect from an LDWA event.
My only minor gripe is that the organisers did not provide a map of the route, either on their website to download, or at the start of the race. It would have helped with recces, and I would rather like to use some or all of the course for training runs. I suspect that I will run this event again. It would be rude not to since it starts two miles from home!
