Was today's run called "Run London" as that was the only way to get away from the park?
We live down in Kent and left home at 7.15am to be at Wimbledon in time to get the shuttle bus to the Park. At the start we were told it was delayed by 30 mins due to transport problems, Surely the elite runners were not waiting on the shuttle buses to bring them, and those of us who had managed to get to the start on time could have started given it was a staggered start anyway.
The race itself was great, once you got started and the course was well marshalled with plenty of water.
Then the fun started when we tried to leave. We were met with a long queue for the buses to be told that each bus was talking approx 1 hour 10 mins to get to Wimbledon & back. Just what we needed when most people were still walking around in their running shirts & shorts after being advised to bring little with them to the park unless they really had to.
Surely Nike knew how many people were coming and from whicgh location, as they asked us when we picked up the shirts. Did they over estimate how many people the area could handle?
