Did the race in 2022
The course was great and the atmosphere was good, but I felt the starting line needed better organisation, a clear marker that shows which direction the race will begin and guidance markers for a potential finish time to help you decide where you will start (e.g. nearer the front a sign for 30 minutes, then towards the back 1 hr)
