In short: Great support from Marshalls, can't be faulted for that.. In full: Very friendly team, but 6 laps is tiresome and having time yourself does make me question the fee for entering. Was told that timing chips are too expensive, but it's nice to be able to acurately record your time. If you're looking for a no frills run out, this is for you. Date of review: April 13, 2015
In short: friendly cheerful run In full: never ran as many as 6 laps but the friendly marshalls and atmosphere help a lot. decent goody bag to feed you at the end as well Date of review: April 12, 2015
In short: The marshalls were really encouraging and motivating - even call out our names out with encouragement. Second time I've done a UFD Hackney race and would definitely recommend! Date of review: April 12, 2015
In short: A friendly race - credit to the organisers In full: This is an enjoyable race, on paths around the border of Hackney Marshes (about 80% on tarmac, and 20% grass). The route is flat and quick. The run has a small, community feel: a highlight is the cheerful nature of organisers and marshalls.
I don't begrudge the entry fee (it isn't expensive as London races go), but given the quite low-key nature (no chip timing, no road closures etc) I'd rate it even higher if the fee was reduced to make it even more of a community event.
In short: Entertaining run In full: Six laps of mixed terrain , grass and Tarmac , good support from the Marshall's all the way round which makes up for the lack of local support
Feel good run that never dragged in even on the final lap , potential. PB course ,or a good course to just go with the flow and enjoy it Travelled four hundred miles to do it and wouldn't hesitate to do it agai. Date of review: September 5, 2014
