Well done Gloucester for putting on a great event yesterday- stressful for the organisers having to move the date a week forward. The start village was quick and painless to pick up a race number and a spit away from the start line.
The bag drop off was also only 100m away from the start line so you could undress at the very last minute.
The 4 laps were not gently undulating (they never are) but this course is possible for a PB. A lot of runners were doing it to bag their GFA for VLM 19 and it was very possible- the mile markers were exact and there was no confusion with 2 other events (half marathon and 50km) running at the same time. - plenty of water stations and support.
Technical shirt and (decent) medal at finish.
The finish village was separate (a mile away) from the start. Tea / cake and massage available.
