i understand where you're coming from Cougie and the British 10k is well known for being a rip off,but honestly,do you know of any race,any size for £22 where you dont get a memento of any description? I mean how many people would've seriously entered the race for that price if there wasnt a medal or a memento promised as there was?
i'm pretty sure it wouldnt've cost that much to hire the venue out, surely the cost of policing and closing down major city centres would cost far more, this was nothing more than a rip off, i've never come across a race costing so much that you basically got nothing for.
i did the half and as i said on that forum ive complained(unsurprisingly heard nothing yet) and i'd hope everyone else will do the same, a medal was promised but none was given,a massive rip off, an event to avoid and a company to avoid when thinking about races to enter!
it clearly states medal as a memento and winners prizes,when i asked where the medal was i was told the winner of each age category got 1. ive sent the directors an email demanding answers! £22,no t shirt,no medal(as advertised) just a carrier bag with a load of tat in it! never seen anything like this at a race before in my life, i hope everyone that entered complains as i have and hopefully we will get somewhere with this!
anyone know how many have signed up for the half,that seems pretty quiet too! 3 of us running it and our bib numbers are 2488,2489,2490. would be good if thats how many runners have signed up but i somehow doubt it
