Summary: 2009 - new venue, course ok, volunteers great, organisation poor
Comments: After 5 years of putting on a full IM distance race, you would have thought the organisers would have it sorted. The new venue with split transition was poorly thought out, and dire for family & spectators. The lack planning for the usual poor British weather was crazy. The course was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Expo was a joke, parking was non existant, split transition not well thought out like IMDE. Poor experience and post race food was pork pies, pasties and sandwiches made by some grannies! Just what you want after racing 140.6m!
