In short: Greedily and lazily organised. Unsafe. In full: Negatives - Poor public transport to the venue - the race started 5 minutes before the first train from Coverntry for example. Non-existant signage and policing of start area lead to disorganised mix of abilities and runners constantly in each others way for miles and miles. A narrowing and 90 degree turn immediately after the start caused a complete standstill just after the start The Pershore road section far too narrow, many runners ended up on the pavement dodging spectators, cones and signs. The finish area was so badly organised and cramped that people had to wait minutes to cross it. The wait between finishing and getting a blanket/water etc was 10 to 20 minutes - not ideal if you are in need of medical attention. Basically they had the facilities for 5000 runners but took the entrance fees of 15000 and hoped for the best. Positives - The water bottles were small.
