I think their hands are probably tied with the finish area because of all the other activity stuff in the way, so they took us around the side of it to avoid any clashes with high wire courses / mobs of tourists / buses etc.
I had a big smile on my face at the finish as that 0.2m reminded me of the last bit of the Highland Fling and I just thought 'you b*ggers' - if we haven't knackered you enough on the trails, this last bit will definitely get you .
Ouch - slightly sore legs today from all the downhill sections !
Good hilly race, great scenery, really enjoyed it (even the 4m uphill to the finish which felt like it would never end through those woods !). Overtook a tonne of people in the last 6miles, probably why I am feeling it today!!
