I called them yesterday and i got the impression they hadn't sent them out, cutting it a bit fine but she did say it'll be here today (it wasn't) or Monday. I'm a bit worried if it doesn't show up Monday I'll be traipsing up town on Saturday to collect my race pack.
I think the changes are great. That last section when you almost get to the stadium and then turn away for a mile is soul destroying, I like the fact the first incline has gone as well. I don't see how the changes can mean anything but a faster course, looking forward to giving it a bash again.
