This morning thousands of runners braved the cold weather and took to the streets of Pretoria East for the Ford 3-in-1 road race. I hear the 10km was a breeze and I heard quite a few complaints from fellow runners along the 21km route; from distance markers being incorrect to the few nasty surprises (hills) we got along the route as the race was advertised as “fast and flat”.
What really got to me was the distance; we actually ran 19km instead of 21.1km. I hear the 10km guys also complaining about that route being 500m less.
