My experience: Five weeks after Prague, I registered late for this and travelled with my friend to race. We stayed in a small hotel and when they heard we were running, they gave us a bottle of wine! The race was a huge event, like the one in Prague but this time we were better organised and arrived at the start nice and early. The weather was perfect and another superb day out, topped off by improving my result from Prague by 4 minutes!
