A fairly cold morning greeted runners on Sunday - with a hardy few still opting for tiny singlet running vests - brave!
The course was largely flat, but hump back bridges over the A40 and M5 certainly felt enormous with a few fast kilometres in the legs.
The route was well marshalled with lots of support at the end. Countdown markers indicating 400m then 200m to go received mixed reviews, but personally I found them helpful to know how much longer the suffering would continue.
To sum up: a fun, cheap and local event made for a good morning. Well done to all who competed.
