In short: Hot & hilly but nice race. In full: Starts and finishes at the recreational ground so lots to do for the kids while you're out running. Slightly more hilly then undulating but nothing that is a total killer. Could do with an earlier start for a hot July day. The route isn't the most inspirational, mainly running through the residential streets of Bushey. Lots of friendly marshals on route though, plenty of water stops and a bargain at £9.

In short: Hot, hilly and a bit horrible In full: The 11am start made it too hot particularly along the long 40mph road and I am not sure why some of the smaller roads were not closed off...I think Bushey's car drivers were having a very off day; sounding their horns and running people over.
Marshalling was a mixed bag of some very good marshalls really getting behind the runners and those who stood chatting on corners oblivious to all.
On the positive side,lots of water stations, nice medal at the end and the atmosphere was good in the park, but all in all, not I will be doing again. Date of review: July 13, 2009
In short: well organised race with plenty of prizes. In full: First time I have done this race - it was undulating but not as bad as reports had led me to believe. lots of marshalls and several water stations. Nice to hear "mind the horses" at one stage rather than mind the cars! Good to start and finish on grass. Also great to see printed results put up after race, so people could see their place and time. will be back next year. Date of review: July 13, 2009
In short: Friendly well organised local run In full: Good fun, second year now and no complaints. Good atmosphere throughout, particularly at the beginning and end. Will return. Date of review: July 13, 2009
In short: Good run if you don't mind suburbia In full: This is the 4th time I've run this and I'll do it again as it's a well run day on what is often a hot weather meeting. Always plenty of cheering on from the locals and the fine marshalling people. Not the most picturesque of runs but will be back cos I like it. Date of review: July 13, 2009
