In short: Very hot, needed more water, happy with time In full: Didn't seem to be much info about what to do etc for beginners. Was running on my own so had to keep asking people what to do, sorry to them! No water at 2.5k so very dehydrated at 6k as it was so hot. Difficult to say if best race ever etc. as it was only my first one. Date of review: September 5, 2004
In short: Got well below the time I was hoping for but could have been better organised In full: It was the hottest day in a very long time so I certainly wasn't expecting my 53mins! But the roads were closed off late, the race was delayed because of on the line entries, there was only one water station that wasn't very well manned, and at the end they wanted your chip but didn't want you to stop moving, and it wasn't clear where there was water or goody bag collection points. And we missed the award ceremony as that wasn't clearly pointed out either.
Still, I was pleased as punch with my time so that makes it all ok. Date of review: September 5, 2004
