Robin Hood marathon races 2016

Still the sound of the initial phases of the races amazes.

Over 13,000 runners for the full, half and mini marathons.
Started by the Lord Mayor and Richard Whitehead (200m T42 Paralympic champion and Marathon world record holder).
Enjoyable as a spectacle for a number of reasons.
And I said so last year, before the sheer scale of transport chaos caused had become clear.
So I’m hoping all the work done in designing a course that doesn’t cut off The Meadows paid off.
That said, met one Old Meadows resident who managed to park the car in the bit of Crocus Street that was always gonna be cut off.
