In short: Well organised start line In full: Second time running this race. Breaking up the start into different colors meant the start was well organised and the route wasn't too crowded. Good atmosphere and organisation. Will be taking part for a third time. Date of review: July 17, 2007
In short: Good race, shame about the baggage chaos In full: A (largely) well organised an enjoyable 10k round Hyde Park. The course is a little tight in places, but generally ok. A pleasant run was badly let down by the utter chaos that was baggage collection. By the time I got to the front of the queue (after an hour or so of waiting) there was no one on the desk and people were just left to go into the baggage tent to rummage through thousands of bags to try and find there own.
A real shame, as everything up to that point had been great. Date of review: July 17, 2007
In short: Good London run, not enough toilets, lots of water. In full: Always nice to run in Hyde Park. Quite hot and humid - 2 water stations which was good to see. Was quite congested with runners for first 3K with odd kink just after 1K which caused stand still stop. Same route as 2006 Nike 10K so good to compare. Not enough toilets with very long queues before start - one friend missed their start by 5 mins after being in queue for 45. Nice t shirt. Date of review: July 16, 2007
In short: Great race, shame about the fiasco baggage collection In full: Great race, with brilliant atmostphere. Also very pleased as got a PB. The baggage collection nightmare at the end was a shame, especially as the last thing my legs needed was to be queing for 40 minutes. Date of review: July 16, 2007
In short: Good race - terrible baggage collection. In full: Well organised but let down by the free for all bundle and 1 hour queue to get your belonging back after the race - when all you want to do is go home or get something to eat! Hyde parks route was ok - but could have been better if run past the palace and other great sites around there. Good crowds Date of review: July 16, 2007
In short: Very enjoyable race. In full: Very enjoyable race. The wave start was excellent, plenty of water, great t-shirt and medal and the shower at about 6km was much needed as it was hot. My wife (who was watching) enjoyed the atmophere so much she has promised to run next year. Would definately do again. Date of review: July 16, 2007
In short: Great run - shame the crowds were so quiet In full: I really enjoyed this 10k and found it to be very well organised. The warm up was a great touch (I didn't have a bag but did notice the long queues). My only gripe would be that on the whole the crowds were completely silent, even at the finish line the cheering was limited. This was a shame - remind your own fans to make some noise for everyone! The marshalls tried to make up for this so thanks guys :o) Date of review: July 16, 2007
