Marathon mess, very disappointing

2015-10-28 06:00

WHAT a mess the annual Goss and Balfe Marathon was, and still is.

What are we teaching everybody to do - that it is to throw your litter down because someone is sure to pick it up for you?

With a strong wind blowing, all those thousands of water sachets ended up in the bush, the drains, the rivers and the ocean.

Surely runners can be told to hold onto them until they see a bin (not that many were provided).

Warner Beach residents have just spent many hours and thousands of rand cleaning up our verges, etc.

Who is going to clean up again?
