In short: Below average race. Water stations were a farce and pre race pasta party a complete rip off. In full: Below average race. Realise this race is more of a fun run but travelled long way merely to do a "personal worst" time. Started in correct (?) place but clearly majority of people did not. Passed hundreds of people walking witin first 2 miles.Water stations were a farce - why no signs saying e.g "Water 400 metres ahead on Left".People could then have gradually moved over to correct side Pre race show not a patch on London. Bought tickets for "Pasta Party" at £6 each back in January, never again. Tickets then on sale per last magazine for £3 - this does not encourage pre-booking. As for the pasta - 11 pieces of ravioli for £6, come on GNR organisers, get real!
