Biting wind, lashing rain, a spot of hail during the early part!! What's not to love about winter seafront races. Great atmosphere as ever, plenty of fellow TRAC members there too mopping up the age bracket prizes (not me though)

Always an interesting race, as the weather can be challenging. I love to run in the wind and rain so it's a great one for me. Great atmosphere and fantastic marshals. Lovely fish and chips on town post race too.

The weather did not play it’s part on the day, which made it tough and in places difficult to manoeuvre. The marshals were amazing though, and it was a great event. Would do again and would recommend
