The organisers got all the results wrong so one poor women was given first senior, 1st vet over 35 and 1st vet over 45 - this was corrected! I was actually the first woman to finish - although i don't think the organisers wanted to believe me! I did get my trophy in the end!
I was really disappointed with this race - the lack of publicity, lack of marshalls (my poor dad stepped in and was stopping cars on the roundabout at Shenley Hill in Radlett as there wasn't a marshall in sight - at what was probably the most dangerous junction in the whole race). At times i had no idea where i was meant to be going! There needed to be far more water stations in that heat too....
A shame as it could be a well attended and well organised local event.
I agree - the route was good and this could be a really well attended event if people knew about it. I contacted the organiser as i wanted to pass on feedback from myself and from a number of people i'd had spoken to after the race - in order for this event to get better in the future.
