In short: An excellent effort and worthy cause In full: My first 10k and a pleasent surprise. Plenty of entrants and plenty of support. Started by Howard Webb, who also ran and beat me by about a mile. Course a bit challenging for me with a nasty hill at about three quarters point, but not terrible.
Grumbles? A big bottleneck with barriers about 300m from the start. Took about a minute to get through from my point about two thirds back. If I was serious and going for a time, I'd have been cheesed off. They need to either get the barriers temporarily removed or change the course for next year.
