Well done on the PB! I can imagine the sprawl of half marathoners going much slower was massively unhelpful, not what you need for the whole last section with no concentration to spare.
Can’t believe they got rid of the loops at the end after all the feedback and then replicated one of the problems in that way...
It was really annoying. Joined the common bit with as the 2h30 Duracell Bunnies went through and had to overtake everyone running over 1h55. The one good bit was the pavement cycle path from Logie Kirk to Blairlogie as I had it to myself. Was really narrow from Manor Powis to the Peak as the road was taped in 3 sections.
The new route was tons better than the loops, believe me! The 1/2s did get in the way a bit for me too, but people were much more understanding than last year if you had to squeeze past.
Well done Dave on the PB. Impressive consistency at the end. I can’t believe they designed it again to have fast runners going past slow runners at the end. Removes feeling of racing, and it just isn’t the same with the masses around. Idiots.
