In short: Loved the new mass start format but really sorry to hear the reports from the slower finishers In full: This is my second KC on the spin and decided last year that this year had to be fancy dress as it just seemed wrong without it!
I really liked the new format as starting all together at the top of the hill and then running straight back up was fab and was also great for my other half who was supporting! I am really sorry to hear the negative stories about lack of momentos for the later finishers, that is a bit of a nightmare, I am sure that Dr Rob is mortified and will be ensuring they are sent out ASAP. I also know he will try his hardest make damn sure it doesn't happen again.
As always the Trionium Marshals were fantastic, particularly the grim reaper at the top of Hill 2 who gave me a big man hug (I was also dressed as Death!)
I hope the new format stays but would do it again whatever the format! Date of review: January 1, 2011
