City 2 Surf Congestion Questions
Posted 29 July 2005 - 06:30 PM
I'm new to the City 2 Surf race but an experienced runner.
How bad would you classify the initial congestion of the race? For how many kms will I have to run at the same speed as the rest of the pack?
I unfortunately missed the opportunity to get a seeded/preferred start...

Also, the 3km marker (first km marker) is not correct, it should be between LJHooker and the lights in double bay.

One thing I noticed last year is the pack isn't good at following the racing line. You can often duck out of the pack to follow the correct line, Rose Bay being a prime example, where the vast majority of the runners seem to be stuck in the left gutter.
If you're in good nick and haven't done anything stupid through the first 7-8km, you'll clean up through Heartbreak. If you're an hour or under it's fairly clean sailing from the roundabout onwards.
