“It was brilliant! Lovely atmosphere, great & well marshalled course. Hot showers & generous prizes! We all had a lovely time & will definitely come back next year.”
“Have you ever competed in a race where they are closing the course behind you ? We have.
When you are running the final 0.1 mile and people are watching you. The commentator then bring everyone's attention to the final two over the microphone. Then, as you approach the finishing line, there is a crowd of people applauding you and your names get read out for all to know.
I felt like a celebrity.”
