Tough repetitive course, but an iconic location and wonderful surroundings. Super friendly and helpful team, lovely bunch. Could have been some better signposting to venue and also once there too, but any questions asked were helpfully answered with a smile. Crossings the line was slightly underwhelming - just for me I hope. The compere was chatting and others were milling around so no real response for some finishers (unless you were first) . Medal handed to me and I was ushered away. So I left as soon as I had my bag (which was not securely checked it matched my number)

Facilities are excellent with showers and changing rooms, you will also have lots of room for spectators and see them every mile. 423m elevation for the half marathon race, it is a very hilly course but incredibly rewarding.

There were facilities with proper changing room, water on course every mile. If you have someone who cheers you, that you can see the person every half a mile. The course have gradient 135 meters for 10km according to my running watch

Enjoyed the event (apart from the weather!), but have a couple of grumbles. The What3Words link left me a 8 min drive from the venue (maybe Waze got it wrong?). The medal was also disappointing as it covered all races and didn't reward me for my half marathon effort!
