Needs some improvement

The course itself wasn't communicated well on the day (different people saying different things). Mile markers missing at 11 miles and 12 miles, which was quite unhelpful.

Jon Kennedy / Mar 18, 2019

Well organised and good for pacing.

The route was well explained, it's easy to pace yourself with the laps. It's very flat too, good for PB's.
