In short: Clubby feel, but even as a tortoise I felt welcome. In full: I entered online, and had a problem finding the start (me not knowing the area, not their fault!) so had just collected my number as the whistle went. The lasses on the race desk were great at sorting me outreally quickly (thankyou).
The marshalls were encouraging, even though I'd been lapped by the winner as he crossed the line and was definately a back runner.
I may have caught it on a good day but the park was beautiful, and a quick course meant I nearly got a pb. Would definately do it again if I was in the area. Date of review: June 14, 2011
In short: Fast, flat 10k for the experience runner In full: My opionion for this race is that it is for the experience runners, almost clubby atmostphere. Marshalling was good on the 4 lap, repeatative course. Down side is that the course has a bad camber on the Vauxhall side curve to the course and that aprt from the marshalls, who were great, there is no other support for those looking for encouragement. The plus points is that the circuit is very flat and quick. Other park uses can be a low hazard. For £11 on the day don't expect much in return. Worth doing if there is nothing else in your diary for this early start. Date of review: June 12, 2011
In short: Friendly and efficient - what more could you ask for In full: Done this twice now and have been so impressed with the organisation and hospitality from the marshals and organisers. No shortage of food post race and fluids every 1-2 miles. Looking forward to it next year. Date of review: September 16, 2010
In short: Quick race in pleasant surroundings In full: Entered the 9/8 race: My first 5K race and a good event to participate in. There were a lot of quick London club runners (top 12 all went under 17mins) but overall a good mix of abilities in a field of about 180, so not too intimidating for a beginner. I ran a 20:48 time which put me in the middle of the pack in my category - I'll be back and looking to hang onto someone's shirt tails to break 20m next time! Friendly Marshalls, nice surroundings and well organised. Date of review: August 11, 2010
