This was the longest race that both Steven Osmond and Wendy Foxall have participated in, and with the surprisingly warm conditions it was a bit of a baptism of fire!
This event is superbly organised and is highly recommended for anybody preparing for a spring marathon (eg. London, Manchester, Stratford). The course is a pan-shaped, with a two-mile in/out stretch and two eight-mile loops. It’s a bit slopey in places but there are plenty of water stations (with quite a lot of gels on offer too) and lots of encouragement in the residential areas.
