I can't believe the mentality of some folk. Whinging about not getting a medal, when you have had a technical T-Shirt (About £15 for one on Wiggle) ,a backpack with stuff in it, and a dozen free youghuts for £10!
I did the Shakespeare, 2 weeks previously for a small medal, a banana and a bottle of water, which cost £25. Plus I had to pay £6 to park.. That was something to moan about.
Medal or not, for me this is the best value event in the country.
Only minor grumble is that you could do with doing the course in reverse if there are 1250 next year. A wider start is a must.
