Good run as always, 4th year doing it I think! Just a shame the dark green tshirts in large were gone early, fancied one of those! At 7:20 I think it was, only large ones left were the pale pink ones. Must still be the best value 7 miler around though! shirt + sandwiches/cakes/tea/etc afterwards at 10 euro!
