Sunshine and great organisation
One small thing: On findarace - it says Goody bag. In fact, you could just help yourself to some snacks at the gazebo when collecting your bag. It would have been nice to have a piece of fruit available also (e.g. banana) Not a big thing, but worth updating your info on here.
Very well organised, upbeat staff
I would however have liked to have seen a log of the half way distance as I believe other participants did not complete the whole course.
If you don't complete the whole 13.1 miles you only cheat yourself OR anyone out of a position who have actually completed the distance after yourself!
