Super Special. I like the fact that these are midweek events. Rock up and run with ‘race’ infrastructure, sociable atmosphere and friendly support.

Chased the Moon. Loved every bit of it, including the last, painful bits. Brilliantly organised and a pleasure to look at large murals of Sergio Aguero and Colin Bell all the way round. Thanks to all the tambourine tappers who cheered us on too.

Great little race. It was very well-organised and somehow not boring for 4 laps as there are switch-backs etc. The perfect running conditions helped. I'd do this again.
