Did a half the other week, I don,t tend to do many road races as prefer off road fell type stuff.Anyhow I placed myself at the start in the correct finish time bay the gun goes and we are off.It becomes very evident after the first mile that most runners around me were in the wrong bay at the start.I,m getting really pee,d offand having to go up grass verges to get around large groups of 11 min mile runners.........who have started in the 8 min mile bay.Anyhow we come to a hill and at 3 miles some are virtually walking , Its a stretch with high banking on so it forms a bottle neck, I,m virtually running on top of slower people as are other runners too , so I tap the lady in front who has an mp3 on and is running with a friend , and shout coming through,she looks daggers at me , so I squeeze myself through smiling , and get a shove which nearly knocked me over , then a load abuse about not passing on the left and you should pass on the right ..........she was bigger than me so it just made me run faster. But seriously whats the etiquette here ??
