In short: Fun & friendly In full: Really enjoyable race - great encouragement from the marshalls made it. Love the T-shirt -and much more useful on a cold wet day than a medal! Date of review: February 13, 2006
In short: Friendly fast race around outer London In full: Very well organised, with lots of friendly marshalls on the course as well as at race HQ. Reasonably flat and as scenic as could be expected. Good quality t-shirt. Date of review: February 12, 2006
In short: Was my first ever 10K last year, 3 mins quicker this year. Yippee! In full: Bloody freezing at the start but once we all got going it was OK, first 6K were lovely to run but the last 4 to the finish and especially the last section past the roadworks were hard work. Well organised, a good event. Date of review: February 12, 2006
In short: I love running in the rain In full: Definitely better than the howling freezing wind last year! I really enjoyed this race this year. Fast course, feels more down hill than up although the last three kilometres can be challenging with tired legs.
Tee-shirt great this year. Joining instructions said no water station so the inclusion of one was a nice surprise. Lots of very friendly cheery soaking wet marshalls, the whole thing was a pleasant experience all round, will do this one again. Date of review: February 12, 2006
In short: Surprisingly quick In full: I'd been told that this wasn't a particularly quick course but found otherwise. Very well marshalled with the exception of one roundabout just after the water stop which didn't have one and should have done.
