In short: Very wet, tremendous marshalls. In full: I quite like running in the rain, but this was more than just rain. By lap three there was a soapy lather on my masculine running tights, which probably says as much about my washing machine as it does the weather.
I quite like the idea of laps, but at times it was a touch dispiriting seeing people coming past you in the other direction. But very flat course, was a minute outside my PB, which I was a tad disappointed by, so I'll blame the weather for that.
Excellent marshalls, really friendly and supportive in the wet. Calling out splits was also nice at the start-finish area.
I made the mistake of leaving my in the rain during the race, so shivvered my way back to the station and found enough coins in my pocket to buy a charity shop jumper for the walk home! Date of review: November 18, 2010
