I agree, it was hard looking down over the prom at about 8 miles and seeing them finish as well as was the zig-zig down Dukes mound.
T-shirt was a bit uninspiring - mile markers didn't sem to stand out much either (maybe that was just me day dreaming)
Bog crisis as usual but there is another set of toilets on the lower prom at beach level that were padlocked closed! Genius Brighton Council!
Nice gooie bag - the kids were pleased when I got in! Liked the course apart from the zig-zags. Lots to see and the bit on Hove seafront where runners were both sides of the path in different directions didn't prove to be a problem.
Plenty of water stations - only one where there was a problem. Bag drop was quick too!
Personally got a new PB 1:57.50 - went out quickly but the hill on 8.5 and 11 really did for me.
