I enjoyed it was tough course but it's a bit more of a challenge the only thing I recommend they do at the winter warmer event is if the half starts at 930 then start the 10k at 945 or 1015 as today the 10k started at 10 o'clock which slowed the half marathon runners that had completed the first lap so it got a bit congested

how was the course: i'm sure running the course the other way would have been better for people to achieve faster times, as there were more uphill battles than down.how was the organisation: i can only remember seeing one water station during my half marathon from the 3rd lap onwards. I also happened to lose 2 running gels while running which made me think, for the entry fee wouldn't a gel station make a huge difference to the standard of 'letsdothis' feel more premium.How was the atmosphere: fab turn out of supporters, even the runners supported each other during the race! awesome. however the frustration of not staggering the half marathon & the other race very well i can imagine ruined the atmosphere for several runners as surely 20 or 45 minute stagger would see less half marathon runners cut up at the start of their second lap.
