No, you were lied to by the marshal. Normaly race organisers stick to what they've told you when they send you your number, and if they do change anything they write and tell you. Races are often local events run by charities or by running clubs themselves. They both want you back next year so they do their best to make the envent as proffesional as possible and usualy get it right. The jubilee event was organised obviously by incopetent amatuers who don't see us as compettitors but as £30.00s. If any other race had run out of water you would probably been told "sorry we're out of water but we're trying to sort it out."
I, believe it or not enjoyed this mornings event but feel it could have been better.
Good luck with your running Gnasher, maybe have a look in the racing ahead window and pick a local event.
All the best PM
