Question about the course - I see that there's actually three different courses that converge at around the 5K mark.
How does that work for age group awards, etc? Seems a bit unfair that people could be competing against each other when they're not running the same course. I know the elites all get routed the same way - are all the competitive runners also routed that way?
If it's anything like London then one is for runners and the other two for hobby joggers and walkers. Anyone capable of winning an age group award would be in the same wave.
