Hmmm, any results up yet? I know a guy, set out to do the marathon, first guys round were directed the wrong way, FOUR times, ended up back at the half marathon point and after 14 miles decided to take 5th place in the Half. Not quite the full marathon he thought he was going for. Serious issues. I've seen the medal, its very poor, some writing on the ribbon and something a bit more bespoke would be nice.

On a positive note, I didn't get a t-shirt on the day but I've emailed the organizer and he's kindly offered to post me one out.

I think (hope) they'll learn from this years race and next years will be a better experience.

Thread necromancy alert: it looks like this event is still happening annually - whiterosemarathons.co.uk . Any reports from the last couple of years on whether the level of organisation's improved?

Got something to say?
