Brighton Marathon 2021

Surrey PhilI've been watching the live stream broadcast in chunks and have now seen myself limping across the line. Not my best running on film by some margin.
One thing that I have noticed is the number of young children crossing the line with parents. This was being done previously and this year's pre-race instructions was telling people not to do it. Children could get lost, impede other runners, etc. I think I am well into double figures with the numbers I have spotted and the race commentators (all Event Team personnel) seem to enjoy it and even interview those responsible. A bit confusing when Grounded Events give specific instructions yet their staff do the opposite!
Personally, I don't mind it at smaller events but not at big city marathons. Moan over until the next time.
