Overall :


Landscape : 8/10Route by the sea
Non Repeating Route: 7/10Around two miles are repeated
Difficulty : 8/10Quite easy route.
Easy to visit : 10/10Very easy to visit and you can just visit for the run and take the ferry back.

Good for personal best: 8/10Mile 1 is uphill and I think mile 10.

Overall :

Difficulty : 5/10The end is uphill.
Easy to visit : 8/10Easy to visit, 2 hour ferry
Easy to participate: 10/10Have not found any limit in numbers. The registration is by post
Facilities/Organization : 10/10I have run this twice, absolutely nothing bad to say 
Good for personal best: 6/10There are bits that are uphill, not really the best for a pb 
Will do it again :  YES.
Other notes :  In the video it seems that the cars are very close. This is not the case. All drivers were very careful, supporting and stopped for the runners. It is the time lapse that makes it look like this.
