Always an outstansing race as it's closed roads and through London. The start is in Hyde Park which is well signposted but due to the weather the whole area was a mud bath. There were no walkways so everybody had wet muddy feet before the start of the race. Massive quesues for the toilets so although the start of the race was 9am, my start time was 9:38am - the microchip records from when you cross the strt line so that was not a big deal, but always disppaointing having to queue for 20minutes for the loo. Bag check was also long queues but moved quickly. Amazing support along the route from public and good marshalling. Couple of the water stations didn;t have water as we were the last wave. Also couldn;t find my colour pacers, so was a bit confused with other pacers in different waves. Overall a great morning event. Didnt hng around after as it was raining ut tehre were food stalls etc.
