The support is very little along the first 40km, and it gets rather lonely. The finish though, along the coast of the town is rather impressive with drums beating and a lot of people cheering on! It was worth it getting there! The course is mostly flat with some minor hills, but the weather (if sunny) can be a problem! Also,Runners face the sun all the time.The scenery includes farms and small villages, so there is no shadow.
