My first half, loved it, been reliving it all week. Everyone was so relaxed, supportive and helpful. Made the experience one I will never forget. I'll definitely be back to improve my time or even dare I say attempted the full distance x Thank you x

First Middle Distance
What a great day, great event and great organisation.
The lake is fantastic, clear and warm when weraced. Bike chalenging without being too hard - pity about the A41 - zero local support on the route but great support at the turn point back at the lake.
Multi lap run with loads of feed stations and passes the finish area each lap so great for supporters and atmosphere.
Thouroughly enjoyed it and will be back...
