There aren't enough ten mile races in the calendar and this is a newbie, only starting in 2015. The course is pretty much all along the seafront, a mixture of promenade and closed road. It's generally flat with a steady but manageable climb after three or so miles. Watch out for the wind though - being right on the coast, if it's a windy day you will feel it pretty hard one way or the other! The event was well marshalled and supported, the medal was decent and there was water and free clif bars being handed out at the end but no t-shirts or blankets which you might expect for the money. The best thing - the friendliness and camaraderie of the other runners and so many of them waiting around at the end to cheer you on and chat about the event. Strongly recommend it, especially if you're ready to step up from 10k but not ready for a half just yet.
Great marshals and a nice chunky medal not a cheap one
