The only thing I would improve is the course signs - I missed several turns. Most of it was well signposted and the Marshalls at road crossings were great. So maybe there was a false sense of security or perhaps a few blew away, but many people took wrong turns coming back to wanstead flats and I ended up running a bit short due to wrong turns. (I wasn’t up front so didn’t unfairly win!).

Lovely low-key, super-friendly event. Stunning course (the fine weather helped!) and very well organised. Some brutal hills at the mid-point but the rest of the route was fairlly flat with a few gentle climbs. Would definitely consider it again and can highly recommend it.
