The 5th time I have travelled to Scarborough for this event. In the beginning it was a nightmare as you collected your number on the day and the queues were unbelievable, it was touch and go whether you would get to the start line in time. I think Alison Burnett will agree with me on this as she did a couple of the early runs. The last two years have seen a vast improvement with the introduction of numbers being sent through the post and chip timing being introduced. This means that now the process of getting there and to the start line is a much easier proposition and even the queue for the toilets before the race isn’t half as bad as it used to be!
