Run-to-the-Beat Half Marathon 2010
The Arrangements for the Run-to-the-Beat Half Marathon on Sunday 26th September 2010 seemed to work well. Vehicular exit from, and access to, Westcombe Park was easy, with little delay. The noise level at the Gibb Memorial (click video) seemed enough for the runners but, thanks to the array of directional speakers, was not too loud for most local residents. At the Maze Hill pinch point the sound was less than that from the stage in Greenwich Park. The weather was cool enough for the runners, with no rain on onlookers. A big improvement on the 2008 Siege of Westcombe Park.
The new right-turn marking for cyclists - but not cars - can be seen in the video as well.
