    i seem to recall it was one man and a pickup last year going around putting up barriers, so he starts at 6.00pm, and finishes at 7.00pm...

    Damn!

    If they don't have the resources it shouldn't go ahead. Considering the start is at the college, it shouldn't be impacting the town around rush hour. Friday is POETS day for many, but it isn't unusual for people to take it a little easy for a pint after work etc.

    30 minutes should be adequate to sort the barriers out etc.

    With only 200 people doing the 5K - why not have a solely 10K race? Problem solved...

    Ipswich 5k Summer Series - Race 1 | Nice Work Race Management Two laps around Christchurch Park... that is your 5K... they run regularly. There is also regular events in Chantry Park etc.

    i probably exaggerate, i only saw one bloke last year who shut off the end of a street just as i was about to go down it, so was a bit pi**ed off, this year i will be away in plenty of time... fingers crossed...
