Good course for a quick time although the cross winds were tricky and reckon you often get them as it's very open. The course is quite repetative but it's good pretty flat tarmac.

Well organised and all super smooth. Personally running loops requires mental strength, but it’s a really great location, it was quiet which meant no queues for the loos or coffee :) top marks from me
