In short: A good flattish course with good Marshall's and a nice atmosphere In full: PB's would be very possible if you were near the front and there hadn't been rain for a while! A bit slippy in places this year.
There needs to be more toilets at the start -about twice as many. Several of us nearly missed the start!
The Uxbridge to Watford route is a better way round in my view-despite the walk from the station at the start.
Generally a good race with good Marshall's and a good atmosphere. I'll be back. (Shame about the baggage bus nut that wasn't the race organisers fault)! Date of review: November 8, 2009
In short: Good Race - friendly atmosphere In full: Enjoyable race along the canal for most of the route. Tough incline at the end, but only because it was the last mile. Great comaraderie at the end between the runners.
Only real issue was that the baggage van took 2 hours to get from Uxbridge to Watford leaving us standing around in the cold. Lucky the weather wasn't too bad. Date of review: November 8, 2009
In short: Really enjoyed it, running alongside the canal, was a bit slippy tho, found it more difficult to run. Needed more toilets! there were about 50 people waiting for 6 toilets! the scenery was nice, but it was the same thing the whole way through. Date of review: November 8, 2009
In short: Great scenery, Great puddles and Great fun. In full: Mud and puddles made this interesting this year, if slower. Excellent break from the norm! Will be back for more. Date of review: November 16, 2008
In short: 2008 race: Bloke with the blue baseball cap In full: Well done Purple Patch - great race. Thanks to the guy with the blue baseball cap who was so encouraging!! Nice to see spectators turning up on a run like this and cheering us on. Date of review: November 14, 2008
