In short: Great pre-marathon 20 miler In full: Four laps of 5 miles make this race ideal for a progression training session, building up to marathon pace or beyond. Well organised and fun atmosphere - post race showers and changing area very welcome. More loos would be good (as always!). Date of review: March 29, 2010

In short: Friendly, essential, well run pre-marathon must do. In full: My first time Finchley 20 race and I really enjoyed the day. Laps do seem daunting but in fact are a good way to beak up the miles and gauge pace. Marshals were good and like so many before me the Hillingdon AC lady at 4 was a real tonic. She is the epitome of how running events should be conducted and great solid club support. Quality medal and tidy goody bag. No T... no problem. More of the same for me next year.
In short: Happy Loopy Lappys In full: Extremely well organised. Parking not a problem, traffic was well marshalled. A pat on the back for all the Marshals involved making this a safe and pleasant run. I would definietly run this one again even though I am still aching from yesterday. Runners were extremely friendly as well. Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: Great marshalling and a hassle-free event In full: First time in the Finchley 20 and very pleased I entered. Great prep for London and friendly marshals are a key part of what running events like this are all about. Date of review: March 29, 2010
In short: Marshalls were excellent, the lady at mile 4 of the 5-mile loop didn't disappoint, and the lap format meant that i could pace myself well. An ideal pre-marathon race! e Date of review: March 29, 2010
