In short: Fantastic organisation and great race. In full: Superbly organised, everything flowed perfectly. Great race, the 2 pacers leading the 45min group were excellent. Love the Dorney Lake venue and there is no doubt this is the best race held at this venue. Date of review: May 8, 2010
In short: Good club-organised event In full: This small low key event was a joy compared with the big professionally organised charity events held there. Just as well organised as a big event, except that marshals/helpers all seemed friedly club memebers, rather than the usual impersonal paid hands. The weather waas perfect for a PB, as the wind was light and it wasn't too hot. I just LOVE Dorney Lake as a venue, as it is so scenic and flat. Date of review: May 8, 2010
In short: fast, well organised, friendly marashalls, what more do you want? In full: Well organised, plenty of toilets, really nice medal at the end, friendly, matt to finish chip timing, fast flat course, no congestion.. (no sure about the number of sweets in the goody bag though.) Highly recommended.
In short: Great race, and good facilities In full: Really enjoyed this as i got a PB, well organised, very relaxed and having access to the clubhouse was nice beforehand as well. Date of review: June 16, 2009
In short: Just as good as last year but without the sun In full: Second time of entering this event, and it was just as good. Good organisation, good support from the marshals & good number of helpers at the (3) water stops. The 3 different pacers was a nice touch - something for most runners to aim for. Nice support on the way through the line. Afterwards a good goodie bag & very nice medal. Still the course if you want a PB. Good car parking & baggage storage. Results on-line shortly afterwards. Would like to see an actual start time rather than a gun time. Great event - roll on next year. Date of review: June 8, 2009
In short: Perfectly organised and very fast in the right conditions In full: Love Dorney as a venue. It's flat, fast and closed to traffic. A bit open to the wind which slowed things a little on Sat. Perfectly organised, nice goody bag (I haven't had Love Hearts in a while). Great value. Date of review: June 8, 2009
In short: Second time I've done this race and will look forward to coming back again next year. In full: Excellent event. Organisation was good and it was nice to have the pacemakers back again. Marshalls were encouraging and the weather was spot on for a 10K. Date of review: June 8, 2009
In short: More for PBs than the pleasure In full: Logistics were better organised than previous Dorney events (so well done) and frequency of water was good. Agree with comments about the quality of the medal and the sweets were good. The venue (on a non-windy day) is ideal for PBs but in terms of scenery for more casual runners it could do with variety. Not sure I could do a half marathon on this course. 1 comment about the placing of marshalls. They were well placed for each turn, manned the car park and water stations really well, but 1 or 2 more on the long 2.5 km straights would have been welcome. Date of review: June 8, 2009
