In short: Money back In full: I second everything that has been said before about this event and the shockingly poor organisation. But what has really upset me is the attitude of the organisers. It is one thing to run out of water – but quite another to belittle the slower runners by inferring that it was only them that were affected and shortening the course thus taking away their ability to complete the full marathon. In addition to this it was unacceptable for the DJ at the finish to make rude comments about the runners still on the course!
Rather than spending the day drafting an unreserved apology for their comments in the press over the past two days – they are trying to pretend that the water shortages were due to a mysterious theft! So how do they account for the water shortage at Mile 3?
I want my money back and I want the organisers to shoulder their responsibility with an unreserved apology to every single runner.
