In short: Good fun in the sun In full: Good, flat course but as commented medal collection at the end could have been better. Impressive seeing so many Santa's in Battersea Park :-) Date of review: December 5, 2009
In short: Nice idea shame about the pricing and the promised treat at the end In full: It's a good concept and everyone had fun but I'm not sure it justifies Â£21 entry fee. Baggage deposit/collection was not great but better than a free for all. Not sure why they thought it was a good idea to have chip collection immediately after the finish line, and where was the smoothie?
Next year why not have a premium (sponsored) outfit say at Â£10 more? - Santa leggings and long sleeve tunic / top. The felt is uncomfortable (too warm), swallowed half the beard, a better (even if cheap) runner's outfit makes more sense and is less wasteful, as people would keep it at the end and could provide publicity for the organisers, charity and sponsors if branded, rather than filling all the park bins.

In short: Hilarious and friendly, the race marshalls, runners and spectators are all very supportive and kept the race going so fast. I was surprised the race finished so soon. will definitely do it again Date of review: December 5, 2009
In short: Sparkly day, beautiful park and 2000 very enthusiastic Santas, super way to spend a Satuday morning in December ! In full: Really enjoyed th race, very well run and efficient although at the finish it took a while to collect water,bars and very shiny chunky medal. The course was very flat so P.B material if you could muster up the energy wearing a very "warm" santa suit. Marshalls were good, public was rather surprised to see so many Father Christmases plodding along in the sunshine, supportive, never the less. Wore my suit all the way home on bus and tube !!!! Great run for beginners. Date of review: December 5, 2009
