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!
