Good course but it is undulating. You`re either going up or going down so it`s quite tiring.
That said, attractive route - mainly rural (on roads) or semi-rural.
Good friendly atmosphere, cheery marshalls and the pick of St Albans` pubs for a post-race pick me up pint.
I'd second what comments have been left here - I've done this the last couple of years and this is a very well organised event, along rural lanes (mostly). There is a longish drag uphill about half way, with a corkscrew turn at the end (always the worst bit I find) and a steepish hill about 8 miles, but you do get the benefit of the downhills. A good test of fitness
Already done a pre race run with my athletes,( David Lloyd Pacers)
Lots of undulations with one main steady climb at around 6 miles.
Lovely scenic course, Well marshalled. We compete year after year!
Yes a great warm up for Watford half 2 weeks later
