Thanks folks - yep a PB and GFA (just) with 3:04:56 :-)
Curly - yes they could do with a bag drop for sure. Whilst the road closure stuff was great, some of the general organisation was seriously lacking, particularly given this was the 26th year of a fairly big race!

Superb stuff, emdee.

Just been looking at your splits on Strava (followed you btw), very impressive. Looking at the last four miles, dare I say you definitely have a sub 3 in you...
