I would think a 8 o'clock start on the 13th September is too late, St Lukes 5k the previous week starts at 7.

Absolutely as it will surely make it dangerous for those further down the field of competitors and which is bound to put people off

Very fine time am so glad that the organisers have had the vision to see the necessity for this change

Sunset is 19.52 today according to weather app, so could be dangerous depending on the evening.
