First time running this race, was a tough course but thoroughly enjoyed it and have already recommended to other runners. Also the whole event was very well organised and plenty of snacks and refreshments.

Thoroughly enjoyed the event, supportive Marshalls and an opportunity for supporters to picnic. Snacks and drinks provided were an added bonus

The music was too loud. all day long from 8.30 till 4pm. we couldn't hear the person next to us. we kept repeatedly asking to turn it down as the speaker was facing us, but the presenters didn't care and did nothing. After 7 hours of being in "Ibiza", most of us left annoyed and with a headache. all of us are in our 30s -40s so a party style race wasnt what we were looking for. Not impressed..
