Where do I start, escape to afan was my first ever event and what an experience. The atmosphere was great the support from marshals, competitors and supporters was amazing. I 'only' did the sprint race and have got to say I've never pushed myself so hard. Afan is also an amazing place to host an event like this, I might even be back for next year!
