Fun and well organised event
The run was a little hard, mainly watching people sitting In the sun, but the organisers cheered us on and got us through. Lots of water on offer, and the flapjack provides at the end of was totally needed :)
It was great to hear our names when we ran through the finishing line too. Gives you a sense of achievement.
I would definitely do this run again.
