Straight forward course although quite boring by lap 3. X2 5k laps are easily possible at this site and would be so much better. A little too competitive with marshals yelling over-take the person in front of you!! Too serious.

My friend and I were the last to finish the race - the Marshalls were fantastic. They were really patient and supportive despite the cold and the rain, motivating us to finish really well and cheering us over the line. Thank you all!
