In short: Very, very enjoyable. Good organisation, friendly, lovely views of Albert Bridge in the evening sunlight In full: Would definitely do it again, and am looking forward to more of the same. The race marshals were particularly helpful and friendly, and actually liked not getting a goody bag because they're mostly filled with stuff you don't need. Date of review: September 12, 2007
In short: Nice atmosphere In full: It seemed a little bit elite when I turned up (they maybe because at 18 stone I gave away about 3 stone to the next heaviest runner!) Although I got lapped by the winners I really enjoyed it and was very close to a PB would do it again Date of review: July 31, 2007
In short: Small crowd, great if looking for fast, car and people traffic free run In full: Went there looking for a fast 10k course to try and get a sub-45 minute time. Very early start, 8am, which is not great for body being woken up but ensures that you meet very few park pedistrians.
Good, competitive field to pull you along if looking for fast time. Not unfriendly in the slightest, but not friendly for very slower runners; the prizes were being given out when at least one slow runner had yet to finish. Major gripe for me was the distance marking. 5k marker was not visible, nor was theer a 6k marker. I ws told there would be markers every 2k and at halfway. For fast-time purposes, would do it again.

In short: Well organised, marshalled and friendly race. In full: Well marshalled, 3 and a bit laps of Battersea Park. A mixed ability field (lot more men than women). Good PB potential if you can wake up your legs enough for the 8am start which a few of us struggled with. Lots of prizes up for grabs. Date of review: June 18, 2007
