It was a wet evening and much cooler than you would expect on a July evening. We didn’t mind too much as the rain kept the midges at bay. As soon as the race finished everyone piled back into their cars as the midges in this area are particularly aggressive and even with repellent on after a few moments we were covered in the things. This is a very enjoyable race nonetheless involving much boggy terrain and a rocky summit. Well worth the drive through, and we even got a medal!
Heres a nice film someone has made of the race https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Yf6aQBUM7U
