In short: Mud pies anyone? In full: Started the race with brand new running shoes - ended it with a couple of cow pats on my feet! It didn't stop me coming back for the 2nd round and I will be doing the 3rd as well.
A word of thanks to many of the fast 15k runners. Even on their third lap of the race they still had time to give a couple of words of encouragement as they sped past to a portly slowcoach doing the 10k - much appreciated! Date of review: February 20, 2006
In short: Late start and inaudible PA spoiled the day In full: Most other reviewers have raised the points I would have so I will just add that the PA system was completely inaudible. Two of the four speakers pointed over the start line (doh!)and the other two faced the runners - all 1,500 of us. Why not put the speakers in the middle of the start grid?
