In short: Small, well catered for race with an excellent atmosphere and a great PB opportunity! In full: Loved this 10k, Gunnersbury is a gorgeous park with a 2 mile perimeter. You end up doing 2.5 laps which makes it great for cheering spectators. The Ealing Eagles Running Club hosts ensure this is a well organised and friendly event and it's a great opportunity for a PB. I'd definitely want to do this one again. Date of review: May 21, 2013
In short: Great Race In full: A well organised, well marshaled race. Good support around the course created a good atmosphere. Nice touch having pacers, helped me get a PB :-) Date of review: May 21, 2013
In short: Super organised and super friendly In full: I really enjoyed this 10k, there was trees for shade, lots of toilets, a friendly welcome and lots of smiles when we arrived, chocolates at the finish and a bottle of water plus a medal all for £12. Some small inclines which made it more of a challenge which meant I was a minute off my PB but it was still good fun. Date of review: May 21, 2013
In short: Brilliant race full of welcoming marshals to cheer you along and pacers for up to 70mins - brilliiant! In full: A lovely race for a beginner or for a plodder like me because the marshals were so positive and helpful and pacers were available for 60min and 70min times - not just for the speedy folks. However, there were plenty of inspiring performances by 'elite' experienced runners too so definitely a race for everyone! Great to have banana, chocolate and Haribo in the goody bag to aid recovery. Cool medal with the Eagle, and the Eagle mascot was on hand for a photo opportunity too! Brilliant! Date of review: May 20, 2013
In short: Great medium size event, thoroughly organised. In full: Two and a half laps around the pleasant Gunnersbury Park, mostly along the footpaths with a short section across grass. Only improvement would be less but longer laps, but then it couldn't be in Gunnersbury Park.
As far as the organisation and atmosphere went it couldn't be better, very impressed. Date of review: May 20, 2013
In short: Fantastic race from the welcoming Ealing Eagles In full: This is a great little race in leafy Ealing, which is suitable for all abilities. A good race last year made great this time around by positive subtle tweaks.
Great value for money, flat enough for a fast time, free photographs to download, wide range of pacers, after race massage, so many cheerful marshals, free drinks, distinctive medal, great goodie bag... and the list goes on.
Forget your big crowded 10k races with extortionate entrance fees and make your way to Ealing. Date of review: May 20, 2013
In short: Very well organised race with fantastic support from the marshalls. PB potential as pacers were provided. In full: Great race for beginners as well as experienced runners. Registration was quick and easy. Distance was marked along the route with water station at half way stage. At the end you got a lovely medal and goody bag. Good value for money.
In short: Top stuff. Perfectly organised, friendly and suitable for all abilities. Great value for money, particularly as pacers were provided at 5 min intervals - which led me to run an big PB. Other organisers should follow their example. Date of review: May 19, 2013
In short: Inclusive event that has something for everyone In full: What a really enjoyable day. Where do I start with an event that had everything Easy registration on the day followed by a group warm up. Pacers running to help that PB potential More marshals than I have ever seen at a 10k event creating a relaxed and supportive experience, the cheers for the last finishers were almost greater than that for the medal presentation. Same again next time please
