In short: Good Race In full: I would like to congratulate Deal Tri on yet another good race, and ask you to say thank you to all the marshals who did not just stand there and point they gave some fantastic encouragement to runners at all stages, a job that is not easy to fill and especially with the wintery conditions Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Fails to obey BARR regulations In full: Having run this race several times in very different conditions, today was not too exceptional, but to my biggest disappointment of how many runners was allowed to wear head phones. A club of this magnitude must be members of BARR and one of their regulations is that runners SHOULD NOT Run with headphones, especially as this is run on roads open to vehicle movement most of the way round.
I am a Race Director and I know that the running club I am a member of enforces this regulation of no headphones.
I will not run this race again purely because of this violation. Your club should adhere to health and safety regulations, as one runner next to me could not hear us tell her to get over because of the vehicle that was trying to over take us.
