When I did the etape last year we passed our mate who was a half way through his marathon after finishing the etape, he was training for an ironman.
It is £63 and expensive but the roads are closed and it is supported pretty well. Be great to see more closed road sportives up here.
The bad publicity is down to a few people not liking the roads closed which is fair enough, but the majority of residents seem to support it, they were fantastic and out in all weathers shouting encouragement and some were even handing out cookies and drinks. It definitely brings in a lot of money to the area, going by what I spent locally
