AWESOME, well worth the 4hr drive for me!



I totally agree - it's been a while since I've done it now, but it is well worth the drive (from anywhere in the country). For me it was a 320 mile drive each way!

Its the Medway Marathon on Sunday, current forecast is for 14mph northerly which should mean quite a lot of reaching!
