In short: Great Atmosphere for a great cause In full: Had a great time today at this race this is my 5th 10K and I must say this was by far the best for atmosphere they really got the mood going with the music few hills but i still manages a PB of 53.20 so that topped it for me. Had no problems with getting race number and chip time the course was around greenwich park and you had to go to one point 3 times if you were listening to instructions given then it was simple enough but some people got confused and i think it was on my 3rd time that some people were getting confused on where they should be going so got in the way a bit. £18 was probably most I have spent but a nice medal at end and it is for a good cause thanks for a great morning out the missus and kids came along and wore fake moustaches which was very funny :-) Date of review: November 13, 2010
In short: Terrain from smooth to rough to muddy In full: Thi is my second time on this course, and the pebbly bits were a bit slippery (we were warned at the start), but there weren't as many muddy puddles as last year. Organisation was good; although arriving after 9am meant a longish queue for the loos I still managed to do that, register and drop my bag off by 9.25. I thought the post-run massage tables were a lovely touch - I've got my name down for one next year! The scenery is very nice, but the rough running surface in many places gave me no tome to look at it. Talked to a first-timer who said what a lovely friendly atmosphere there was, which I think sums it up. Oh - and I set a new PB, 5 minutes quicker than this event in 2009!

In short: Rough Surface in places and quite narrow, But pleasant enough In full: More a trail race than anything else. Seems to be mixed up with a few other races as no hills in site even though some reviews mention them. Course runs out and back and then back again along the river tow paths. Wore road flats for this (mistake) and struggled a bit on the surface which is quite rough in places. So on paper could be a PB course, for me turned not to be so. Quite narrow in places but they stagggered the start a little to avoid congestion but quite a busy wee route so some weeving in and out Sunday wakers and Bikes. Very pretty area and probably a good race for novice runners as found myself much further up the field than I normally would Date of review: October 19, 2010
In short: one to try just for the area and organization. In full: thanks to dave and his team for entering me only the night before.easy parking and well marshalled event meant it ran like clockwork. will definately try some more of the fix events in the future. oh and even the dogs new to stay on the left?

In short: My first ever 10K. Was well organised and had a great atmosphere. In full: Even though the terrain was a little lively I managed to get caught up in my first ever 10K and beat my PB. Had a really good race and will definitely be signing up for next year. Date of review: March 27, 2010
In short: Well organised, scenic and fast. Can't ask for much more. In full: The race buildup was great, with a very energetic girl with the mic doing her best to build the atmosphere. Only minor quibble would be the queue for the loos which was a bit long.
The race itself was well marshalled, with clear km markers, and very scenic. Pretty much totally flat, albeit with some large puddles and mud patches to navigate at some points.
All in all a great race for both faster and slower runners.
In short: A nice little event In full: This was a nice day out, in a pleasant part of London and on flat trails. Organization was excellent, with plenty of advance communication, efficient chip handout and starting bang on time with phased starts. Date of review: March 27, 2010
