I know that the short course (because I've PB'd since) and baggage issues didn't overly effect me, and I fully accept I am biased, but there are (still) some overly/unnecessarily angry people on Facebook and Twitter.

This guy facebook.com particularly amused me with his demand that "at the very least" the race organisers should be offering free entry and accommodation costs for the next three years to up to 20,000 people! And even then he still wouldn't come back. LOL!

There are some tits around these days.

I shall do it again. I'm local enough to not need the baggage bus and can walk to the start.

Awwww. I like to run around by the cricket ground - and occasionally to Chorlton if there is a chance of cheesecake from Barbakan. :D

"Following feedback from our runners, we have decided to extend the expiry date on the voucher we sent to those of you affected by baggage or course distance. You now have until 31st March 2017, or until the race sells out, whichever is soonest, to redeem this voucher and enter the 2017 ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon for £35."
