My first ever race and really was clueless on what to expect. Marshall’s were really helpful and it felt like I was part of a big event! One of the bonuses of being a slower runner is I got to cross the line on my own and really appreciated the name check!Lovely encouragement around the course and I just want to say thank you for making my first event so memorable!
