Sorry to post so late but I've just picked this up on the back of booking my November entrance.
I've run the 10k and the 1/2 and much prefer to finish down the straight once. I understand the need for annuracy on distance but could you not find the extra metre's out on the course? The final mini loop was very stoney, uneven and tatty which I felt detracted from the overall event.
Just a thought but I'll still be back in November (and I'd prefer a medal every time.....)
