on a Sunday, pleasssssssssssse!!!
B*ll*cks to that..... i help out at a lot of races. I get up at 5am, and then have to travel anywhere between one or two hours to get there in time for set-up etc. You want a race to start that early....... then get yer rellies to help out.
10.00 o`clock is early enough for a Sunday race, slightly later is better thou.. but each to thier own
I race on Saturdays already (5Km Parkruns) @ 9.00am so any `lie-ins` on Sundays are greatly apprecaited.
Just something i found on google, it's a knot in a tree....
though i suspect someone has photoshopped it to make it look slightly rude....
I take on board everything that's been said above, and for most races I think 10 is fine.
Two of the last 3 years though the FLM has been on a pretty warm day. Starting that an hour earlier would mean a lot less people struggling in the early afternoon heat.
i'm an early riser and wouldn't object to 7 or 8 o clock starts but 9 or 10 is fine too and I understand it is more convenient for many.
What I hate, though, is the winter when races start at daft times like 2pm etc. the whole day is wasted because you are kicking your heels until race time.
