Did the race in 2019
Awesome course challenging course with stunning views and a cool atmosphere . Highly recommend this race
Did the race in 2017
Really stunning and super hard course. If there's any rain pre event this is definitely a course for trail shoes - I had trainers on and lots of slipping around the place. Definitely walk up the big inclines and study the course profile before hands. There are a few bits - especially towards the end - that you can get into a good rhythm of running but a lot in the first 2/3rds that's just rolling up and down. Make sure you preserve your legs on the downhills - very easy to blow your knees out!
