Great... but a bit short!?

Nice route and nice staff & marshalls, but was it a bit short? I only clocked it at 6miles, and only 15 of the 54 Strava route matches I got were 6.2miles, the rest all below - surely too many just for GPS vagaries??
Also I noticed that the first loop took a slightly different route through the wetlands than the other two, which cut about 150m off the total distance. Coincidence?!
Anyways, will defo do it again! :-)

I loved it.

I loved it. I thought it was really well organised and I couldn't fault the set up on the day, everything ran really smoothly and there were loads of people around to ask for help if needed. The staff and marshals were all super friendly and supportive during the race and there were plenty of them out on the course. My only criticism is that I didn't like a four-lap course. I don't think this would have stopped me doing the race though.
