Decent parking, nice route, good number of marshals, home made cake halfway through(!). Really friendly event that wasn't huge - the downside of that was that there weren't many supporters out there. Main reason for not getting a 5 star review is that there was only a medal and an energy drink in the goodie bag. I'd have liked a T-shirt :).
