In short: Worth braving the cold for! In full: A really well organised race with great indoor facilities for before and afterwards. The marshalls coped valiantly with the cold and the traffic, and the whole process ran like clockwork. I've been doing this event for the past few years and hope to be back next February. It's true that the pace markers were a bit confusing and didn't match up with my Garmin but that is a minor point - I still got a PB! Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Cold, but at least the rain stopped! In full: First time for me on this race, and I was very impressed - the marshalls did an excellent job throughout, especially those having to hold up traffic from the various side roads. My only issue, as others have mentioned is the 8 and 9k markers being out, I did wonder what had happened to my pace when I hit the 8 sign! Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Great organisation of a very good race In full: This was my first V10k and I was very impressed on the whole. The start/finish area was well organised, the marshalling and encouragement was spot on despite the really cold temperatures and the race itself was a good one even if, as already mentioned, the km markers were out (especially the last couple).
Around 7km it's a bit tough with a steady incline but overall it's definitely got potential for a PB. I'll be back next year. Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Cold but fun! In full: first time I've done this race and will definitely do it again. Well done to the race organisers and brilliant marshals all the way round the course. Agree with the earlier comment re. km markers but still a great race. Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Its as Cold As Ice In full: Chilly. Bit of freezing rain an hour before the start, but none during the race. Fast course with well placed and encouraging marshalls all round. The organisation really was spot on. The only minor gripe were the 8km and 9km markers which were way out - but then, thats just being picky! Well done 26.2 RRC! Date of review: February 12, 2012
In short: Extremely well organised 10k race on undulating roads In full: This was an extremely well organised race. Loads of parking at Chessington and great pre & post race facilities in the community college meaning no hanging around in the cold.
Undulating course, well marshalled. Not particularly scenic so not such a memorable race Date of review: March 6, 2011
In short: Excellent organisation and marshalls. In full: A very well organised and friendly race. Facilities first class. Marshalls did a great job keeping the traffic clear for runners. Great PB course, well I got one! Date of review: February 24, 2011
