This was a new race for me, entering was straight forward & cost £15 ( affiliated ).
The race forms part of the Winterton Summer Show, it starts & finishes in the main arena.
With just over 150 entrants it was the smallest race I’ve entered.
On one of the hottest days of the year extra water was made available, 4 water stations.
This was more like a club run with some serious athletes.
The course was advertised as flat, but in my opinion it wasn’t & with the weather I found it tough going from the start. After making your way through the village the vast majority is on country roads. Marshals were plenty & good support, roads weren’t closed, but I never felt in any danger. Support in the show ground & around Winterton was very good.
The goody bag at the end had usual snacks, flyers a great medal & a snood.
My time yesterday was very slow & for that reason I’ll do this race again. I would certainly recommend this race to others
