Why I chose this race – Fantastic organisation, not too big but big enough, great course for a PB opportunity. Chester is a lovely place to visit.
I will be back; I’ve done it twice now and plan to keep it in the calendar!
Tips for next time – leave plenty of time on race day, roads can get congested.
