The Bath Running Festival Long Half Marathon near Bath in July 2017

This was the hardest event in which I've taken part so far, not because of the distance (16 miles rather than the usual 13.1) but because of the hill climbs and terrain. The route and climb graphics shown below, captured by my Runkeeper app, give an indication of the challenge.
