No I must be wrong because 8 feet would be 2 yards and 2 feet.

i failed to spot one

Mel - you finished 6 places in front of me! My time was 31 secs slower on the site than the one i timed.

I didnt see any ribbons either.

Yes I had my on. However only revealed it minutes before the race since I had a sweatshirt over my running vest. Did not meet any other forumites I can only assume they were way in front of me !

I was't bothered about the markers being in miles; I mentioned it because I've never seen it before on a 10K.

I must admit I find the pacing easier if I,ve got km markers to hit every 5 mins rather than mile markers every 8 mins.

Yeh i think it would be more of a boost to pass them more often, although i do my runs at home in miles....hmmmm decisions. i didnt see any ribbons either although i wasnt wearing one either! :oS bad puppy

I always used to run in K's but always seem to run in M's now i've no idea why tho. I didn't wear a green ribbon, should buy one I think.

CD - i finished 2 places in front of you i think. might have been the other way round, i cant remember now! i didn't see your ribbon though - but then i wasn't looking as i was too busy sneezing, feeling faint and needing the toilet!!

The only thing I would say is that I didn't know the when the race had started and which bit exaclty was the finish?

Nice t-shirt - there were only large ones left when I got over to the table and the guy there said I would have to run faster next time if I wanted my size! lol.

There was a lovely, lovely lady marshalling at mile 4. She deserves thanks for being so encouraging.

I agree!! She was well nice, made me wanna sprint up the next hill!!

That's Sandra who runs the sessions up at the track for the under 11s. I'll pass the thoughts on. Thanks.

I sent an e mail to the club to say thank you for organising the race and have had a reply from Mark Hurrell.

All your marshals were very friendly and helpful please thank them on my behalf.

Passing instructions on to runners pre race is always difficult and whether a megaphone is the solution I am not sure.


A horn or similar to start appears to work well.
