Really well organised - especially for a 'first'. Only criticism is the finish - for those of us who run more slowly, earlier finishers were on the course, making it difficult to finish - better if we could have run straight into the front of the staium, not round the back. Also thanks to local cafes/sandwich shops who were handing out water - greatly appreciated.
