Excellent organisation for social distancing. Super friendly Marshall’s. Beautiful scenery. 2 small points - car parking away from finish and didn’t realise so had no money at the finish and got cold. Advertising and crew kept mentioning the gin as if it was sponsored or a big feature so a little disappointed that it was just a bar at the end (as opposed to a tasting etc) But minor points on what was a great run
