||Possibly the best organised big race that you can do (2000 entrants). Gosport Road Runners manage to keep a friendly family feel at the same time which is quite an achievemnt. Nice touches, such as somebody walking round the race HQ area with baggage tags and a pen wrtiting out your race number for your bag to go into a secure area. Queue management was also excellent when gathering your chip and handing in kit bags. Lots of good marshalling out on the course, including a number on bikes who kept popping up at the right time to warn of a junction or a tight bend. And a goody bag full of homemade cake and a drink.
