Great race. Very well organised with an excellent selection of blaas after!!!
The course was a bit hillier than I was expecting though.

been racing regularly for past 12 yrs and have to say this was the best all round organised event I've ran in. Well done Waterford. Top class

The grub after this race is normally excellent. This year, friends, families etc. were given free access, so the food was gone before the last 400? came home. It caused a lot of rancour on the day, WAC committee members told some of our lot that they were under no obligation to feed runners. That, combined with the hillier course a lot of people in our club said they wouldn't do it again.
