The event was well organised, and it’s a nice undulating route. Would recommend to anyone. Parking is on a local housing estate, so don’t leave too late, you’ll get parked, you just might have to drive around for a bit.

Great atmosphere.However the roads weren’t fully closed, meaning towards the end there was some traffic dodging.

Really enjoyed it - could have done with 500ml water bottles at the finish rather than the daft wee cups, but minor detail.

Nice country road course around beautiful scenery. Recommend parking 1/4-1/2m away from starting area, so as not to annoy residents and keep area clear for runners. Well organised and friendly..
