Any one do this ? Despite huge organisational efforts (for which we are all very grateful the race went as follows...
1. Women start 10mins before men
2. Men start at rapid pace accompanied by some idiot non runners for first 150m
3. On a very narrow twisting course involving a number of flights of steps, the men catch the women after less than a mile on a narrow footpath.
Resulting in the next 2.5M being a case of the lead men reduced to weaving in and out of women runners/joggers, going out in to the road and jumping over benches/bollards/tourists.
Whilst I appreciate the difficulty in staging such an event this just isn't on, it was very dangerous in parts. For £14 runners deserve better...one to miss I feel next year
