In short: Shambles at the start but good value with the zoo entry In full: Start was just plain dangerous - at the car park entrance with vehicles still arriving at 11.30 coupled with crowded narrow lanes. Combination of good fortune and I imagine sheer aggression which would have had to be used that the fast runners were obviously at the front so not too much shoving once we got going. Hill at 9k keeps you on your toes ! Definitely do it again because it's local, hill challenges and entry to zoo (even though I didn't go). Date of review: October 19, 2004
In short: Poor organisation but good course and friendly runners In full: Distance markers were useless. Need to be colour coded for mile and km and BIGGER. Bins needed at water stations but did see the Rotary Club helpers clearing up on my way back to the car. Goodie bag - eh ? Nice medal though. Could have got a great atmosphere going at the start with some warm up music; not sure if there was even a PA system there.
