With start times ranging between 9am and 10:30am, it felt like we were granted a lie-in for this Sunday morning race. Arriving at Leicester Square underground station at 9:30am, the race village was just a 10-minute stroll away, and on that walk we got to see the first wave set off for the morning. The baggage tents were easy to find and the queues were minimal; having had a dilemma fitting everything into the blue bags, we were ushered to a specific bag-drop queue for oversized bags, which thankfully had no queue whatsoever.
