The course has a few short hill sections but is mostly flat and provides an interesting run around the area. Organisation was excellent , with enthusiastic encouragement from all the marshals. Five stars must go to the amazing choice of the stadium venue: indoor toilets! Plenty of indoor space to shelter from the rain while waiting! My pit crew (husband) would like me to do this run every year. He had a warm bar area with seating, hot drinks and a bacon barm. He was able to watch the finish from the covered stand, where I joined him to enjoy my cupcake. Well done to all the organisers!

Not nearly as scary as expected. Just before the race I was told there was a 900m ascent. Turned out to be 46m in the end. It was a really well organised event and it was really pleasing to come bursting round the corner of the stadium to finish in front of a cheering crowd. The course itself was well marshalled and signposted (which was handy given the number of lefts/rights through the town centre) and there was plenty of support. Will definitely come back to get another PB
