Did the race in 2019
Very tough race, particularly with most of the course being on sand, with quite a few sand dunes to contend with. Good mix of obstacles. Great race

Did the race in 2019
Enjoyed the experienceThere was a long stretch of running on sand that could have been broken up with obstacles.Some queuing at the start (first few obstacles) but no queuing at the rest of the obstacles.

Did the race in 2019
It was too easy. Not going to do it again. Everyone taking part were not funny and they made me feel left out and different.
