Same goes for SMH HM which they crowd out like the Running of the Bulls.
Happily the Canberra roads will take a lot of marketing to fill up to the same extent as Argyle St.
I'll be giving it a go in 2011.
Yup that half just keeps getting bigger and bigger and they charge more and more - moreover there seemed to be a lack of banter in the mid pack this year as opposed to previous years. I was only running a gentle 96, but no jibes or comebacks and alot of ipod central going on. Same goes for City to Surf. Wait for a hike in prices over the next few years. Those that don't believe me, just look to the big ocean swims in Sydney - same event as before over the same strtech of ocean, but recently more than double the price in a couple of years. Makes you think where this extra dough is going.
On the flip side, perhaps this is a move to enable the Canberra businesses to recoup losses from last year's no show on the official date. More people equal more money for them which is good for any local community especially in today's economy.
Keep believing - keep achieving all. Stride for stride on a life changing ride!
