90,000 people queue for bus home after footrace!!
Well - there was more than one bus - in fact, there were LOTS of buses - but wife and I could see the queue(s) and we knew where those busloads were headed -to Bondi Junction railway station. So, after my 14 klm "funrun". We walked 5 klms from Bondi Beach to get the Ferry home. So I could almost say that I have done a half -marathon. Well that's what my feet are telling me anyway.
I will tell more about the event when I get home. Suffice it to say that it is unique and I recommend it to all.
My result was 1 hour 45 minutes and 40 seconds. I came in 41,009th out of 67,249 finishers -which must mean that there were around 23,000 DNF. I was 657th out of 1371 in my agegroup of M60-69. There are some fit old F****'s out there. Unfortunately a young 29yo collapsed and died almost at the finishline and from what the newspapers are saying, it must have happened just after i crossed the line.
