First time in 10 years that I have not run my local Half ( didn't get my entry in on time ).BIG WELL DONE to all them that didn't need their hands holding and went on and run it, and why not as they have put the training in. As for needing water !!!!! everyone should have been WELL hydrated before setting off in the first place, it's not rocket science.
