Planner's comments

For several years I have been toying with the idea of running this race like a relay with competitors running parallel but different courses. I knew that some would cry 'unfair' but helped by the fact that IOF have been doing something similar with their Runner's Choice format I decided that this was the year to go for it. Early finishers commented positively on how their race kept splitting up and coming together again without realising why this was. For the record there were 16 variants of course 1, 8 each for courses 2-4 and 4 for course 5. I produced and formatted one version of each course first and then duplicated and edited the variants. Unfortunately on formatting the initial course 2 variant I transposed the numbers for controls 6 and 7. Unsurprisingly this caused much confusion for many runners. Deciding what to do was not an easy decision - taking out legs in a head-to-head race has bigger implications than in an individual race - but upon analysis we felt that this was the best solution. Next year I'd like to take you, at least partially, to a new part of the city but the logistics of this are becoming more difficult, so just watch this space.
