In short: Unpretentious fun in the sun In full: Once again sat at home totally content after a Sunday morning race ! Was a lovely local race just up the road, racing up to 30-40 races a year today's race was up there with one of the best. Loved the walk to the start line with loads of chat and friendly banter helping taking the nerves away if its your first race(or for me one of the favorites). Loads of space after you finish to chill out and meet some new like minded friends. Reminded me of racing in Cape Town with Marlow FM there playing the tunes. Hopefully more races will take a note from this one and bring a great atmosphere before,during and after your race. Will be back next year to win... Date of review: May 27, 2012
In short: Great Race Great Atmosphere In full: The 1st Marlow Radio Run, was very friendly and organised from the start. Information about what was happening and course details were very well communicated. The course was scenic and flat with a few gates and styles to negotiate. All in all a very well organised race that I will be doing again next year.
In short: Loved it! Brill atmosphere, fab organisation, wonderful scenery. In full: This race has to be one of my favs to date. Great organisation (loads of friendly marshals). Really good atmophere and a beautiful route. Can't wait for next year. Date of review: May 27, 2012
In short: An excellent way to spend Sunday morning running near the river on a lovely sunny day. Marlow now has a great 10k to backup the Marlow 5 and Half Marathon. In full: For a first time run, this was a well organised event with abundant and supportive marshaling. The live radio element added to the already happy atmosphere at the start and finish area. The start was on time and the run itself was a treat, with some open sunny lanes complimented by some welcome shaded paths through the woods. The course was flat and dry, with a few bridges, stiles and gates to negotiate to keep it interesting. Great water stop marshals helped keep things moving even though we were all very thirsty in the heat by 5.5km! The red Cross guys were on hand to help a few people who had a fall too. obviously a lot of planning had gone into this race and it showed.
Finally a big shout out to Jo with her cow-bell at her marshal point - big smiles all round passing her out and on the way back. Date of review: May 27, 2012
In short: For first time this race has been held, overall good with poor start and some frustrations In full: A good crowd, picked up your number between 7-9am. Then they put us in the starting tunnel at 9.10am! Race didn't start for another 20mins, so no warm up just standing around. Thought there would have been a warm up session. Then out of starting tunnel pretty much straight in to a single track so frustrating as behind slower runners, no natural gaps had been created at this point. However, lots of marshals, very pretty route, good water station, medal, water and fruit at the end. For the first time this has been organised it was good, a few tweaks and it would be really good.
