In short: Drop the dual carriageway in favour of the parks In full: I agree with other comments about congestion at the start but I liked starting and finishing in the Bay. I think they could easily choose another start point to ease the congestion.
I also hated the dual carriageway bit and would have preferred to have done loops through the parks instead. Date of review: October 20, 2011
In short: My first race so I have nothing to compare it to but I really enjoyed it. In full: As others have said, more loos needed at the start.
That said, it was nice and flat, great atmosphere and I would recommend it to anyone as a first event if finishing is your main objective. The congestion might be a problem if your objective is a fast time. Date of review: September 7, 2009
