The course was surprisingly challenging, which is nice, but still good for beginners, in my opinion. Well organised, even if the finish/start area felt a bit hectic, due to the several races starting and ending simultaneously. Can be improved, but I still recommend it.

Did the race in 2019
Really enjoyed the Christmas 10 mile. Course was 10 laps of a 1 mile course (with a few ups and downs but mainly flat), not the most scenic route, but good if you want to practice pacing. Marshalls were all friendly and helpful.
