An almost perfect race
10k starts before 1k,3k.. Why??
Except I wasn't able to watch my young sons race or run with him to encourage him...
Because my race already started..
May be its just me but it just seems very peculiar to have the kids running after the start of adult race & completely unnecessary!!
I emailed the organisers regarding this but was given no real explanation.
