Did the race in 2018
Great course for a PB, had a lot of fun with a few friends, very easy to navigate pre and post-race. Would highly recommend
Did the race in 2019
I thought the route would have been closer the the race course, but still a good venue. Surprised that there wasn't a t-shirt as well as a medal. 2 days after the event and I'm still waiting for my official time.
Did the race in 2019
It was great. Very organised. Cheerful Marshals everywhere. Great music. Medal great. Well done aintree. Would do it again.
Did the race in 2019
Good course for PBs, flat & hard. Very cold but not surprising for the time of year. Well organised, everything was posted out before the event
Did the race in 2019
Great event that's well organised and even tho it was a freezing morning there was great spectator support from the crowd.
