In short: Top Notch Organisation In full: Wow, what a Brilliant day. The weather was awesome for spectators (who were great, thank you) if not a little warm for us runners. None of the usual gale force coastal winds which was nice :) For me the day ran like clock work.
The narrow corral meant that everyone started and were able to keep at their own pace. The pacers were a nice surprise too. The route took in some lovely sights around the city so the looping was not a problem. There were a few hills but hey this is Brighton.
The marshals did a great job and the half way atmosphere was amazing. The runners showers en route were brilliant. Certainly the Powerstation loop was the hardest thing, seeing â€˜The Wallâ€™ approaching and feeling it too made you realise what it was you were putting your body through.
The final stretch and support from everyone was great. I crossed the finish line struggling for breath but was immediately identified by staff who assisted me for those precious few moments. Thank you. The long finish area allowed runners to collect their belongings unhindered, rest, stretch and re-fuel. On this particular aspect the organisers got it 100% spot on. I ran the Sussex Beacon and saw what a shambles it could have been. Well done.
Iâ€™m not sure what happened with the chip time but it was out by 2 mins. Although I went by my watch so no drama.
All in all the organisers should be very proud of a well run event that was great for the city. Iâ€™m sure this will carry on year after year and I would recommend it to anyone out there.
