the starting height was over 500ft though and the climb for the hill about 300ft..so nothing too dramatic there. to be fair, it was advertised as hilly & there was a conversation on here on saturday about the hill & which way it went. although beyond the limitations dont have the best website for info etc & it was a little disorganised at the start but it was a cracking race in a cracking setting :) and the marshalls were all fab!

Agree with C. Great race, I knew it would be hilly and hard but it is hard to imagine just how hard!!

To be fair there is only 1 big hill, you just do it 3 times. The rest is not too bad. Still a tough course though, not as hilly as the Cornish but one to avoid if you don't like hills.

1 big hill but definitely a few inclines on the loop too. Just saying that personally, I found it tough. No point lying about it!

Not much of a finish line but what can you expect on such a low-key event.

Agree that marshals were fantastic.

Got something to say?
