Did the race in 2022
Organisation is excellent. Bike course is a little dull and very hilly, but makes up for it by being on closed roads - yes, you read that right, CLOSED ROADS. The run route is a bit dull, being an out and back twice (if you're doing the 10k run) but the views are all very beautiful.
