Good introduction to race events

This was my first ever race, and my first half marathon. When I applied through I got confirmation of my registration with a day or two, and instructions for race day six days prior to the event. Arriving at the event, it was easy to get booked in, and the race itself was well supported throughout the run with more than enough water stations along the route. It would have been nice to have a map of the planned route, but I couldn't find this either from or from or from the emails I received. It may be that I simply couldn't find it, and it didn't stop me enjoying the day. All in all, a great introduction to race events.
