Good run and virtually flat.Well organised Bit of a flat atmosphere though, I'm sure if you publicised it more locally you could get more people out to watch and cheer. I heard a few people along the route asking what was going on.Not a bad run tho.

Very well organised although as it was so hot, could have done with a water station sooner than 5k...
