Races in Aarey are not easy, the hilly terrain makes the overall route tough. Also the fact that a Half Marathon entails doing two loops of the same hills makes the event tougher. This year the absence of any rains ensured a higher suffer score as compared to previous editions. This is definitely not a event to target a personal best.
