Did the race in 2022
The organisers were so helpful and friendly. Marshalls were so supportive and lovely. The lake was amazing. Course routes were well mapped out and pleasurable to ride/ run. I have already recommended this on Facebook to my club. I had an amazing time and would definitely come back. Thank you to all involved to make this happen. Also, as an aside- love the design of the medal.
