im with shin splints here - we have had rain but no flooding near me. the race organisors didnt have a plan to move the race to the staffordshire moorlands in the final hours. sure its a few hundred miles away but you would have had a race. talk about short sightedness.
That could have worked, I'm sure SS could have got everyone in his car
I actually thought it went very well considering it was the first race and I think it has real potential bearing in mind the only alternative for December that I can think of is Bedford although that is significantly cheaper.
You cannot please all runners but I suspect if you ditch/replace the medal and provide slightly better food options (whole banana, cereal bar, mince pie maybe) which shouldn't be difficult with Costco round the corner then you'll be fine.
Oh and tea/coffee at the finish would be nice for the old guys like Andyp
I really enjoyed this race, found everything as expected according to the info on the website, and am sad to see the negative comments! I didn't feel at all misled and was pleased with the facilities, the course, and the goodies (yes, including the medal!!). I hope people aren't put off from entering next year's race
Seriously, you were pleased with the medal?
You don't work for the MK winter wonderland organisers do you?
