Marathon training was a waste of time

Have your say

I just wanted to update you about the half marathon. I have been training for months and it was a huge disappointment.

We were nearer the back of the crowd of starters and had no official communication at all. While waiting we were told by police it had been cancelled and not to run.

To hear that people were then allowed to run makes it awful for the ones who were stopped at the beginning. My group all had our own drinks so would have been able to complete the course.

We are also doing it for charity so have to now try and return funds unless we can find another to enter. I assume because so many ran they won’t reschedule. For those who were stopped from taking part something should be done.
