Such a different, beautiful and fun run, ill definitely be coming again next year and encouraging my friends to do so. The only recommendation would be to have more water stations and paper/recyclable/compostable eco cups for those without bottles. I ran without water and really struggled in the heat (kids had lost my water and I could find it the morning of my run!! ). When I got to the water station I had no way of having any drink and it was a struggle. That said it wouldn't deter me and will make me more organised next time I complete this run. Loved it! Thank you so much to all involved. Such a friendly and happy event.
