Anna’s thoughts on the race ” Amazing evening for a run… crazy bottlenecks at the start as you have to run on the pavement for the first 2.5 miles (mental note to start nearer the front next time!), challenging hills with a beautiful view of Almscliffe Cragg on the way up the first major hill, and whizzy descents that leave your quads and hamstrings very confused as to what to do when you reach the next flat section! Generally awesome run and really recommend it if you want a challenging road run.. ”
