A long but fun day

It was a well organised, smooth and successful day, given that it was only their second time of hosting the race. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and loved helping the community during this event. The organisers did a fantastic job in explaining tasks to be done and were also supportive. Can't wait to do it again next year!
