One thing I do know is I'll never start on the left again, I spent so long weaving around slow runners from the r/h side it was a joke. I even swore at a couple of them, I was so frustrated. Felt bad after as it wasn't their fault.
Couldn't agree more. I spent most of the race trying to pick my way through the field. There were runners in the first orange wave who started on the right hand side walking before the 2 mile marker. As mentioned by "pjath84" as well.. really no idea why 4 guys pushing a bobsleigh were in the orange wave! Maybe to be in the Orange wave you should have to provide a previous UKA result to suggest that you should be in there?
Kind of feel "lucky" the weather was alright because hanging round at the start for god knows how long would have been even worse if it was cold/wet.
