In short: A nice race raising money for a good cause - crowded start In full: well done all the volunteers - thank you!the only fly in the ointment was the time keeping of the race clock and the distance between the km-markers. it was about 5-6min faster than my HR monitor (started at the sound of that horn. good parking and a small enough race for beginners as well as the more aspirational racer.

In short: Reasonably well organised, but poor marshalling in places and where were the finish timekeepers? In full: Friendly race but and adequate number of marshals (thanks for your efforts) BUT The fun runners were indistinguishable from the other runners so the ONLY marshal at the split failed to direct all the fun runners down the correct turning as he could not see which were which. Further more there was no noticeable signs for the runners warning them of the split. I saw 2 young runners coming back against the field because they had gone wrong, and two more at about the 4k point talking to marshals and race officials. The fun run was supposed to be only 2.5 k and these children were going to do at least 8k if they went straight back.
There were not any finish time keepers, so I don’t expect there will be any results. In addition to that the finish clock had not been started until the race was underway so it was approximately 3 minutes slow.
I would expect a ‘race’ to produce results. In my view a ‘fun run’ may get away without it.
Sorry if I seem negative but as a runner of 18 years, and a race organiser myself I don’t think these are acceptable short comings. e indistinguishable from the Date of review: March 26, 2006
In short: Nicely organized and a friendly atmosphere In full: It felt really strange to run most of the Camberley 10K route, but starting and finishing in the 'wrong' place. A nice race, friendly and well-organized, and very well done the army - I could hardly lift those packs, never mind run with them. Date of review: March 26, 2006
In short: Friendly, good mix of people In full: Really pleased to have a new PB. Good course - couple of hills, but mostly fairly flat. Good atmosphere with Hospital Radio. Bottle of water and Mars bar at end were very welcome. Thank you to organisers & marshalls. Date of review: March 26, 2006
