will never do this event again. Late starting. Not enough stewards, no starting groups so i was caught at the back. I then had to run the first 5 km in heavy congestion while other 'runners'(that's being generous) walked, stopped, took pictures of themselves( i kid you not this lead to a very frustrating run I have learnt my lesson and will stick to smaller runs. This run is ok for fun/charity/first timers but for anyone else will be excruciatingly frustrating
I did it last year, and this pretty much sums it up (apart from the cold weather). The only other thing I would add was that as well as walkers in front, there were faster runners coming through behind us. The route is nice and it's OK for a first run, but no more than this.
