My t shirt arrived today.
Mine too !
Should I expect a couple of bottles of evian recorded delivery before the weekend ?
XB. I agree with your post totally.
Muggle, Anyone can have an opinion on a race they have done, or if like Soup, they often raise good points. I've yet to see what you have to contribute to this thread, as you didn't do the race & have nothing to offer.
I consider BP to be a mate. Yes, he does know what he's talking about. I also consider Stephen to be a mate. Doesn't mean I can't disagree with BP, or post about a race Stephen has organised that I felt was poor this time. (Check out my reviews. I have sung Stephen's praises for a year. His own races are fantastic. This one, that he appeared to take on in name only, wasn't great, with several problems.)
I don't know any of the other people on here who did the race & complained about it on here. They are not in my "little gang". I am an individual, not in a gang, that goes to races alone & I do my own thing at all times. My opinions are my own, & I always post fairly.
No t-shirt for me yet.

Muggle Freedom of speech anyway in my book
My T shirt arrived and very smart it is too.
Aside from one missing drinks station which didn't bother me as I carry my own drinks I thought the race and organisation was pretty good. Decent facilities at the leisure centre and Marine Hall, well marshalled route. OK a better finish line would be good but hardly a major issue.
Really can't see what the fuss is about. Expect I'll be back next year.
p.s good arguments on here though. Quite amusing
Will, Try being in the last group when you AREN'T carrying any water & they've packed up the water stations, then we'd see how "amusing" you'd find it.
The "fuss" is about a dangerous lack of water, (none for 9 - 10 miles. Not many before that) a short course, (HM 60 m short, full 16 m short) no t-shirts left, & no race cert. These things happen to matter a lot to some of us, when running a marathon is a very big deal.
My t-shirt is finally on its way.
It was officially 16 metres short according to Ron. HM 60 m short.
When's Clowne Compo?
Has anybody ever looked at how a garmin works?
They generally measure short for any run if you follow the exact shortest line. the way they work means they will always have some error - less over longer races but still some error.
I get really anoyed that people belive there garmins rather than the real route.
Garmins are a tool not a measuring tape.
with me I only use a stop watch to time myself not into garmins
