In short: Poorly organised, expensive, mostly uninspiring event In full: There was no need to delay the start of the race, we have timimg chips and there were plenty of people who had managed to get there on time. It was VERY cold on the Greenwich peninsular. I didn't cross the starting line until 11.10 am, well after the scheduled start.
The route was average, the music over amplified and distorted and the atmosphere flat.
The finish was chaotic, long queues for baggage, and no cereal bars left at the end.
In short: Liked the alps but too much traffic In full: I enjoyed running the laps, a good way to break up 20 miles. However I didn't like running along rough country lanes with traffic only inches away. Date of review: March 19, 2007
