Why the ambulance driver stopped suddenly 10 meters in front of the finish line to have a chat with one of his mates at the side of the road when runners were on a final spurt I'll never know. Totally inconsiderate to the back runners considering the other side of the road was free and did not have ropes on it.

On a happy note, the registration, the crowd, the spread, and the organisation was again top class. Easy parking and well marshalled. Congrats to BRP yet again.

Good run yesterday but the one thing I'd say, and I've said it before - for any run where you're arriving at the front of the starting pack from the registration area it really needs to be marshalled to allow people to move down the back. Myself and many others were trying to move further down the back but the way was blocked by others not willing to go any further. So you've people further ahead than they should have been. Other than that it was well organized and apart from the state of some of the road, particularly the mile or so leading up from the hall, a good run.
