I thought I might put this suggestion to the organisers of the GNR but thought I would ask your opinions first....
Obviously people have complained about slower runners taking up prime space at the front of the starting grid, myself included. How does this sound...
At the start the grid is organised into blocks of predicted times either side of the motorway central reservation.
Could we not, for example, start all the faster times (in ascending order) on the left hand carriageway, and continue with the slower times on the right hand carriageway. That way, when the two sides meet further on, the faster runners have had, hopefully, time to get away, leaving all the slower runners behind them. This way the faster runners can get away, and the slower runners are not looking for people constantly trying to get passed them and everyone could enjoy the race even more (if that's possible !!).
What do you think...?
All the best
