It was a good fun evening. The course was well planned as it wouldn't have been too much for a total beginner but had a few fun tricks and route choices. I always enjoy slightly crazy events and I'd put this in that category - negotiating the small alleyways of Brighton with a headtorch on prime Christmas party night was entertaining.
I was pleased with my run, I didn't make any major errors but sometimes the units were hard to see. I didn't feel like I ran at top pace, but slippery pavements, lots of traffic and people didn't help that. Even so I'm very encouraged to see that I ran the 4.8km course (measured as 6.6km on my GPS watch) in 29.55 - so I wasn't going too slowly.
I won the womens' course and presented the prizes to the other classes. See photos and video here. Also results here.
