Very well done!

Tell us how you found it - was it all pretty straight forward and stuff?

Start was busy, but they went through the process, new peeps had their own run through. I probably went off a bit too fast as not used to running with people. But the marshalls were amazing, direct you round the route and are really supportive.

Had a spurt at the end. You receive your finishing disc thingy and then they scan that with your barcode. Everyone is really supportive and encouraging. I’m looking forward to the next one and it’s a good mix up with my lone runs which I love πŸ’•

Fabulous! I did my number 37 this morning, and every one has been better than the last - although not always a record! I hope you'll find them the high point of your week's running, just as I do.
