An additional refuelling station on the Half Marathon course required. When you then add the fact there were no distance markers at all it made judging pace and how much fuel to preserve more difficult.

Did the race in 2022
The whole experience was really excellent. Incredible course, really clear course directions, very friendly atmosphere. Only thing lacking was enough refuelling stations. By the time we reached the first one at 15k we were in serious need of something to keep us going
