Arm chair ride. Excellent - location, parking, admin, the smooth flat, minimal camber tarmac is ideal for marathon distance. The medal is great. Okay - goody bag, loos, food. Disappointing- vest it doesn’t say where and where the race was held. To be expected- the supporting crowd is small. Ideal LONDON training!
