Did the race in 2022
I had a wonderful time doing this race. The communication before the race was excellent - we knew the route well in advance and we knew where all the checkpoints would be along the way. The route was marked brilliantly. The aid stations were well stocked with everything you might need. The organisers were wonderful and friendly. I would highly recommend this race to others!
