In short: 500m too short and I don't even appear on list of finishers!! In full: If I wanted to jog round Norman Park then I could do so for free- why on earth did I need to pay ten quid for the privilege? There were barely any marshals and just a few cones to mark the way.
I did not even appear in the list of finishes- the only silver lining was that since the race was not even the correct distance my time anyway would have been pretty meaningless.
Runner's World should never advertise this race again: the only word to describe the race organizer is a "conman"- get lots of people to enter the race (good time for preparation for Spring Marathon), pocket the cash and do less than the bare minimum on the day. Date of review: January 20, 2011
