Very hilly but with fantastic views!

A really well organised event with a friendly atmosphere, well placed water stations and beautiful scenery. Very hilly in places but enough level areas to recover. Intermittently followed the 2:20 pacer but his encouragement at the end was invaluable. Thank-you!
