The main issue was that there were official pace groups all the way down to 7.5 hours. If you provide those pace groups, then people have a reasonable expectation that they can participate properly "running" that slowly; so the infrastructure should still be in place for those people.
Whether it's wise to have such slow pace groups is a different question.
Yeah, if you have a 7.5 hr pace group, your cut off time should be something like 8 hours.
Kerrie Aldridge would have still missed the cut off by more than one hour.
There is no cut off. The rule was move to pavements after 7 hour plus
Problem is the 7:30 pacer was also abused. She finished in 7:28 & did a good job. This is the main thing that made London give the free places. London. They stuffed up.
Anyone can use the tube in London and everyone knows the day is a write off for cars. Business makes good money off London so they can put up with some inconvenience.
An hour here or there is not going to make much difference.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-london-48125731
