Really good venue and good instructions. This particular event didn't have that many runners which was actually quite nice. The route itself is very good. Some people may find doing the same loop 4 times a bit boring but I found it useful for this run. Really enjoyed it and can't wait to do another one.
4.3Did the Half Marathon in 2021
Great volunteer marshals on bitter cold morning, someone had swept the course. Rather casual transition security. For an event at dawn in midwinter you don’t expect atmosphere, but organisers did their best. Felt covid safe too.
3.3Did the Super Sprint Duathlon in 2021
Very flat course. Good for PB. Was my first duathlon and satisfied with my result. Organization and course could be better especially for the run leg.
3.0Did the Standard Duathlon in 2021
It was my first try at a duathlon, and couldn't have gone better as an event. Well marshalled, flat course, and luckily good weather given the time of year. Very positive experience, and I'm sure I'll be back.
5.0Did the Standard Duathlon in 2021
Closed course well organised and marshalled would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning
5.0Did the Standard Duathlon in 2021
Great flat course, beginner friendly. Not many spectators due to covid but that is improving. Parking is always about 10 mins walk away but can't be helped. Transition well laid out and the portaloos could have been closer to transition. Marshalls were great, helpful and friendly.
