In short: well done Dartford Harriers another good one! In full: great race yet again plenty of water stations and sponges. Thanks to the residents who were there with hoses- great on a summer race!! Friendly marshalls and police really make the day!! liked the change of course. only gripe - would prefer a medal to a t shirt-I am running out of space for them! Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: Good race well organised shame about the tee shirt In full: A good race, well marshalled and well organised. A special thanks to the friendly helful marshalls on the course - it helps, even if we're not able to say to much. Rather spoilt by the memento being a tee shirt, and even then I didn't realise there was even that until I noticed other runners wearing them! A few of my sponsors looked at it a bit and said how does that prove I ran it. Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: Enjoyable, but......... In full: Enjoyed the race, good atmospehere, good course, good organisation. Only gripe, which I think is fair, is the momento. The T-Shirt instead of a medal was poor, espcially as those who did the fun run even got a medal. This needs a real re-think next year. Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: Another year another relative course PB. Excellent and Supportive Marshalls will be back again next year for sure. In full: The course itself was extremely well organised great marshalls and traffic cops all very friendly and enouraging Thankyou. Not very well sign posted for people getting to event. Finish was bit confusing people queing for drinks and didn't even realise there was a T-shirt till a fellow runner pointed it out. Cheap T-Shirt was a big let down after last years paper weight which was great. Had a great race shame about finish and momento was much better last year. As usual love the track start and finish nice touch, be back again in 2009. Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: A well organised race. Thanks Dartford. In full: A well orgainised event. Everyhing ran smoothly from my perspective. Well marshalled with plenty of water stations (with sponges). Course is tough, especially in the heat and windy conditions but the last 3 miles is all downhill or flat. Date of review: July 21, 2008
In short: good course,very well organised/marshalled In full: Hard work running back into the wind ,plus a couple of hills that are more a grind than killers (imho),but the harder the race the greater the satisfaction in finishing . Agree with other comments about the T shirt although I'm personally not that bothered about medals/t shirts ...just don't want to feel that I'm a walking (running ) advert for the sponsor ! Finishing on the track is a nice touch and somehow makes you feel like a proper athlete . Congrats to Dartford Harriers for organising a well run race and will be back next year.
In short: Challenging race with the hills In full: Plenty of water stations and sponges which were great for such a warm morning. Thanks to the marshalls for all their support and holding up the traffic so that we could cross the roads safely. Date of review: July 21, 2008
