In short: Change the location, make sure the Finish is the same place and start and might consider it for 2013 In full: Firstly the marshals were great, helpful and enthusiastic on a cold Sunday morning. This summarizes the good things about this race.
The race location for the first 6km was depressing and ugly, and it is ridiculous that this race was not a circuit, ie, you finish in the same location as where you start!!
The bus situation was beyond terrible, a total disaster and mess. Upon being told the bus driver was on a 45 minute break and needed a sandwich, we were advised to walk to the train station to catch the train back to the nearest station to where our car was. What we were failed to be told is that the trains only ran once an hour!! What a surprise, left standing around in the cold, again!
We were lucky enough to jump in a cab with a few people that has called one before we got to the station - thanks to the 4 guys who kindly let us jump a ride, hope you all got home safely (from injured leg man!). The journey back to your car was the most fun of the day!
I was also disappointed to find my bag under 800 others in a wet field with no organisation or respect for my belongings.
