Did the race in 2019
This was a beautiful half marathon course traversing through the lovely town of Kirkcudbright, towards another local town via lovely back roads with surrounding fields before looping back towards the town via the seaside. There were a couple of hairy moments running on the roads as we had to weave past cars on the main road back to the town at some points! It was also sometimes a tad confusing of turns sometimes however the marshals were excellent in keeping us right and cheering us on. There was a lovely community atmosphere the whole route as the race started and finished at the local Academy School with sign ups in the School gym hall. At the finish line there was a cheer from the crowds and kudos from the commentator for every finisher passing the line which gave a special end to the race. Overall during this beautiful half marathon course there was a welcoming community feeling with the locals and and participants us all on which certainly kept me going during the last mile through the beautiful artist's town!
