Did the race in 2019
This year's baggage lorrys were a great improvement. (thank to the scouts who were very quick at finding bags). The course is, great a lite challengeing in places which I like. All the marshals are very very good. Loads of encouragement from the local people. I would recommend. Being in October it means it is a little cooler which is great.
