This was their inaugural event, I believe. I'd say congratulations. The course was nice and flat, and generally a pleasure to run on. The organisation seemed very efficient. It was friendly and it was great to finish in a nice athletics stadium.
It was an out-and-back course - with the one drawback that you had runners coming in opposite directions, and there were some pinchpoints where that might have been inconvenient.. but never hindered me.
My Garmin clocked up 13.24 miles... and of the people I know, this was slightly LESS than anyone else... so I'm not sure if there was a small mismeasure. A shame, because this was definitely a PB course... and if the Garmins were correct, then maybe that added more than a minute to the course length. (or is it common for Garmins to read long? There were 6 Garmins in our group, reading between 13.24 and 13.27miles.)
Anyway... well done Newport.
