Enjoyable run with concerns set out as fillows. The speakers at the steat were useless. The crowd I was with did not hear anything but muffled noise. Only one £1 per person went to charity. I would rather done a park run and given the whole fee to charity. Considering the expense of the ticket and the large amount of Sponsorship the event attracted. It must have been a large payout for the organiser. The official photography was a large money making campaign. Site stated free download (evidence available) but it was lie. Only expensive prints and trinkets were available. No paid download option has yet been available. On the while it was an expensive run that lined the pockets of a few and not the charity. It should have been made leave that only £1 per runner would go to the charity. Thank you to all the unpaid marshalls and helpers.
