I thought the new route was an improvement - particularly the last 2k which had far less twists and turns. Weather was perfect and support excellent. Appreciated having three water stations as well.
Last 250m was very congested and it was almost impossible to sprint. Not helped by groups of runners holding hands so that they could cross the line together!
I think there were a few logistics problems last year and the company that organised the event pulled out as a result.
Very friendly event over a lovely course. Could have done with a few more pairs of hands at the water station I thought. Will definitely do it again next year.
This year the Mad Dash has been brought forward to February 9th at 10:00 am. You can enter via the Raceways web site.
