Beautiful. Brutal.

Well organised - it is always good to have a warm indoor space before and after the event (that is big enough for all runners). Well marshalled by enthusiastic people - even in the wind and rain. Great medal.
A beautifully brutal run even though it is all on road. Next year it may be an idea to cut down on plastic waste. It is only 7 miles, maybe asking people to carry collapsible cups (as other races are doing) if they really can't last an hour without water and can't carry it.
