In short: Chaotic from Expo to Finish! In full: Possibly the worst Expo ever, as a club with several first time marathon runners the expo experience should be a memorable event, however a single tent with 8 below average stalls (4 of which were unmmanned!) was a joke!
The race is scenic and potentially a fast course but the distance from the city made the finish more of a shambles than ever!
The organisation was horrendous! T-shirts were randomly given out,the congestion caused huge ques (not what you need after 26.2miles)AND members of the public were being given medals!!! which by the way was half the size of last year with no dates, cheap and uninspiring! The buses were heaving and having approx 2 an hour running caused obvious problems!! GSI are a joke! Never again! Such a shame as 28 from our club made the long journey....
