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
In short: Good start to the week In full: You could think that this race is elitist - everyone is just so fast - but I guess that ia my problem and I need to get faster! I have signed up to all of the series and it is definitely worth the money - you also get a drink after and I was impressed that even the 7th finishers got awards. Battersea Park is not that scenic and I spent most of the time trying to focus on running! Date of review: June 11, 2007
In short: A small, friendly race, in Battersea park In full: "Low tech" and small enough to hear a marshall announcing the start and wishing everyone well. The marshalls (from the run and become running shop) were enthusiastic and cheerful, which was nice. Date of review: May 14, 2007
