Anyone watch the Great North yesterday or the Triathlone?
A chap that works for me did the Great North Run about 3 years ago. He reckoned it was brilliant, but the actual logistics were a bit daunting. Along with thousands of others he got to the start on the train and everyone left old gear they had put on over their running kit at the start which was later collected and given to charity. No doubt the elite brigade make other arrangements!
