I ran 20km in just under 1:20 but didn't run the final 800 metre loop so ended up finishing 800 metres short and got disqualified. I know at the end of the day this is my responsibility, but they should have put a marshal on the home straight to explain where to go. When you are overtaking the slow runners it is not always obvious who to follow, as the person in front of me was lost in the slower crowd.
I think I would have done quite well in the vet placings, I would have finished around 1:24:30 so I was most unhappy.
On the positive side it is the first race I have ever run where nobody has overtaken me after the first 5 minutes.
Despite my D/Q I would run it again as long as I know the route.
