That wait in the cold to move through to the start was really unpleasant. And things were a bit congested at the start. It was a good day, though, I did my second fastest 10K, and it was great to meet the others.

Have heard about these big events being congested, a guy was telling me when on a race last week his friend was lying in 2nd place but came across some people running with linked arms, and had problems trying to dodge & get around them, he still got a PB but went down to 3rd place..

Well done for the 10K and another well done for raising money for an excellent cause.

I thought it was a great day. The wait to start wasn't the best but given the number of runners I suppose it was only to be expected. The first 1km was a bit crowded but it spread out and after that it was OK for me. I plan to do it next year and hopefully will be a bit quicker and better organised with getting there.
