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
