So it was the first year of this event but it was organised by experienced people and there were a few issues.
Scenic, fruit at the end, mars bar in goody bag, local (to me!), flat, lots of portaloos at start
Less good points:
Short course - opinion seems to be 0.4 mile short which is generally thought to have been at the beginning
Congestion getting into baggage hall at start - meant that race started late
Course congestion - some of the paths just aren't wide enough for the organisers' aspirations
Congestion at finish to get fruit/medal/goody bag - thank goodness it wasn't cold or raining
Marshalling a bit hit and miss - some dodgy junctions in the second half needed marshals but had none; a lot of young marshals who really seemed to have no idea
Baggage collection insecure - find your bag and take it away, or pick someone else's
This event has potential but needs a few fundamentals sorting out. I felt sorry for the people who thought they'd done a pb - the course has real pb potential if it's the right distance.
