Did the race in 2022
Tough run, very hilly and hard work but really enjoyable. It would be good prep for a hilly trail marathon. Perry is a really good host, very knowledgable and happy to share lots of experiences and insights. It would be good to know how long we expected to be out there in advance, but otherwise everything was spot on.
