JK *chameleon* 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. Unaffiliated 36:29 37:41 59:40 44.79

Whoever 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 Northern Veterans AC 39:58 41:09 42:00 43:14 70.68

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