    Asking 7kms per hour to leave the track?? What about older people or kids? Last year this was a great family event. I will tell all the families I know not to bother with your run. Pretty crappy. I would have thought you would address the aggressive faster runners pushing people out of the way, including some people new to running. I do a lot of trails and road runs and can’t stand this sort of thing. We should be encouraging people, not discrimiating against them.

  • Brad says:

    Peter,I am sure if your doing your best and keeping to the outside of the track and not hindering people who are racing there won’t be any problems. I have trained hard and want to race, if you want to walk casualy then keep out of the way of the people who have trained hard for this night. This is not discrimination this is about general courtesy. Just because your not in it to win it, others might be. This is an iconic night with great family atmosphere. I for one cannot wait for Saturday nite, I hope this shows a different perspective for you Peter.
    Thanks for the night Geoff

  • Bob says:

    Peter you go for it. The only courtesy you need to worry about is (for slower runner / walkers anyway and only where and if possible) to stay a bit to the left of the track so that the faster runners can pass you on the right. Having said that – the track is circular and you as a competitor have every right to maintain your course around the field. Just because one is not fast does not mean one does not attempt to beat your own clock or distance just as much as the next guy. The faster runners need to appreciate that without the slower guys they will not be a winner in the first place. Faster runners show some respect for the slower participants – they too have been in training just as hard and want to succeed just as much as you – probably some more than you.
    The other problem that will face ALL runners will be the number of competitors on the course at any one time – so times will be hampered – that is the nature of the event – so stay the course – run fast or slow but at all time be courteous to ALL your fellow runners – yes they are also out to be winners – one way or another – don’t let winning the event – be all and end all – the event is for everyone to run and or walk. Enjoy the event whatever you are doing.
