I thought this was a really good race, especially for the 1st time out and on such a large scale. I didn't have any problems with the water points, but did think purely because of the weather they should have either added another station or split the energy drink station out away from the water station.
Agree the mile markers where out in places, which wasn't too bad for the most part, except for the Mile 6 mark which was very far out as you say Gazza.
The other, very minor, niggle for me was the start coral, there seemed to be a lot more people in and trying to get into the Sub 1:45 part than was humanly possible, so maybe this should have been wider.
I also have to say the support a long the course was excellent along the vat majority of the course. I know people have said about no support in the Olympic Park section, but even during those parts there was more support than any other race I've done outside of the London Marathon.
I would happily do this one again next year if it fits in with my other race plans.
