Where and how many water stations there were.

Potentially a very exposed course due to location and the time of year, luckily conditions this year were close to perfect. Not a PB route but a good early season test.

No very well informed. Only thing I did not like was the water cups can't drink from them and run so had to stop which cost me time.

Did this race 3 times now. It's a winter race therefore you should wear layers and be prepare for the typical British weather. People should be told the very last stretch is a sharp turn up a smalll climb and onto a grass finish.

Was a great early start to 2018. The uphills are challenging but the downhills are ample reward.

Dont wear too much, wont take long before youre warmed up so the breeze is welcome as you get near the wind farm

Windy course, always forget how cold it can get, so a windproof jacket is probably a good shout!
