Lowrez, baggage and finish area this year was at old Trafford cricket ground not football. No trucks as normally used but the storage warehouse at the cricket ground.
Should've been big enough if they'd worked out how many runners... But they must've run out of fingers.
No marshalling of people dropping bags off, just a big wide table with 5-10 taking them. So 8:00-8:30 mayhem with hundreds waiting to drop their bag. With 0.5-0.75m to start line.
When runners returned.. Marshals had tried to sort the extra bags outside. Cue lost bags, tags falling off and even bags open. Possibly some thefts even, all whilst 12000 plus runners queued up at a couple of tables to try get their bags.
Massive fail. They have offered a discount for next year... If they get any entries!
