The power station section has been moaned about every year, the problem is where could the course go instead? Brighton has hills to the north and sea to the south, there's not too much leeway to fit 26.2 in.
The mud in the park worries me, it was much worse on Saturday, a cold night and dry day on Sunday improved it, if Sun had been as wet as Fri and Sat (I was setting up stuff in the park and seafront both days and it was horrible!) it would have been bad.
The route out from finish is limited by the sea and 'cliffs' - year 1 I don't think there was anything on the beach, the only way out was the pavement on the seaward side of finish like it is for the half so the trackway does give a wider exit. You have to go a long way east to get to a wide road out. What are the options?
There has been some wood chip put down in the park and some trackway between the pens and start but unless it dries up overnight I'd suggest either old shoes you can bin when you get to the tarmac or take carrier bags to put over your shoes.
Is anyone travelling down Sunday morning? I thought there was supposed to be extra trains on but it seems the 6.35 from Victoria is pretty much the only option. Slightly concerned at being unable to find a plan B should anything go wrong with that train so am quite interested to see what other people are planning.
