Everything went well in the end. Due to postal strikes the bib number didn't turn up until 1 week after the event. Numbers were allocated swiftly on the morning. Probably not worth posting in the future. Course was about 260m short but I didn't mind really! Challenging and scenic course + small turnout= good atmosphere.

Great atmosphere, excellent organisation and a lovely route with friendly marshals. Just a shame the 1/2 marathon route came up 0.3 miles short

Great race - ground was really unforgiving (nobody's fault but should be considered when registering) and the organising team were just the best - really encouraging, all tables very well stocked, and signposts everywhere to ensure you knew the way.

Well organised despite Royal Mail faff.Set off on time even though loads of people needed numbers. Nice route if a little samey (my home turf!)

Receiving 4 final instruction e mails was somewhat confusing and a little frustrating. Receiving instructions from 2 different e mail addresses was unhelpful when searching to ensure that I had all final race details.Sending race numbers in the post seems unnecessary generally not least when there are looming mail strikes. The queue to collect race numbers was frustrating and a little predictable. Nice course. Good eco medal. Good coffee cart.
