In short: Great race and lovely course In full: Really enjoyed running this race today. Very lovely path along the Thames most all the way, with a few bits in towns, fields, and woods to add variety. Very flat, and nearly all on dirt or grass. The staggered start worked perfectly - we weren't too clustered together or too spread out. Marshals were great too - very friendly and encouraging. Thanks all! Date of review: July 27, 2014
In short: Very enjoyable Half Marathon In full: This is one of the most delightful courses I've ran. The scenery along the route is fabulous and its worth worth the entry money alone. Strongly recommend this run. Date of review: July 14, 2014
In short: Lovely run with great scenery. Not a PB location, but good fun and good organisation. In full: Organisation is great. From the coaches which allow you to park at the finish and they bus you to the start, to the marshalls well spaced throughout the course, to the start and finish, really polished and well thought out. The course is beautiful, but whilst flat, the number of kissing gates, a couple of sets of stairs to cross the river and the road crossings mean that there are better PB courses. Having said that, when the weather is decent, this is a fantastic run and well worth the money. Date of review: July 31, 2013
In short: Good views In full: Would have liked bottles if water at the stations. Cups spill when you are running and you are only left with one gulp not good on such a warm day. Date of review: July 30, 2013
In short: Great scenic route - quick with a few challenges In full: It's a flat race, with a few foot bridges to cross and kissing gates to negotiate. Also the path is narrow in places so if you don't like you pace interrupted by the route or other people, it's not for you. Saying that, I still managed a PB!
It's a really scenic route and the second time I've run it - I'm pretty sure I'll do it again next year. I live the variety the course gives you.
Organisers are slick, my only moan is they needed more loos at the start. Date of review: July 30, 2013
In short: What a fantastic race! In full: The team at PP have done it again; just a superb day out! Lovely weather and a pancake flat course along a beautiful stretch of river help, but it's the little touches that make a great race - and this is a great race. I'll be back next year.
