Did the race in 2022
A wonderful venue for my first marathon in some time! The organisers where fantastic in providing the support and encouragement on each passing of the finish line during each lap, which was most welcome, particularly when digging deep for the last two laps!! Looking forward to future Deja Vu events and making it a regular for my growing events calendar. Many thanks for helping me get through a personably tough race!
