Actually, I think most recreational runners do not realise there are separate events companies behind these runs - I didn't too, when I first started joining events... till I got educated by fellow forummers here!
In any case, I guess its wise for me to skip YOLO this year!
This thread reminded me of the hiccups at last year's event (I was walking to the start line, when I was told the run had been cancelled due to impending bad weather... So I went to collect the goodie bag that included a huge yoga mat, only to hear that the run was still on... The queue for bag deposit was crazy long by then, so I ended up walking the route with the huge yoga mat! After coming back from the route, the event area was also a mess, and it took a while to figure out where the yoga session was being held ) ...... I had thought the organisers were just unlucky to be affected by weather conditions last year, but hearing all the feedback here, I guess they are just bad at their job overall!
