Ran as pacer/crew for my barefoot friend. Very warm. KM markers 1-6 around 300m too late, 7 M.I.A and 8 and 9 around 100m late. Course measured long, although did take a few long corners. Start area and finish line were chaos - goody back was less than worthless.
Glad to hear K-Swiss will no longer sponsor this event, but hope that future years are a little better organised.
Hot in the city.... chaotic start with 1 and 3/4 laps of track ... bizarre to overtake runners on their first circuit while on second - I preferred previous layout, which the km markers also seemed to relate to. Did seem a bit longer than 10km which affects its otherwise good PB potential. Good event though - spectators well catered for etc. Better value and logistics easier than GMR

JKC - 7km marker was there, I heard someone else say it wasn't either but I spotted it on my way out.
