In short: Great Gauge for London In full: Lots of positives from this race; Marshals were fab and encouraging, mile markers and signs for water and warning drivers that runners are on the road were a plenty and very visible. Nice and cheap entry, non too strenuous course and nice support early on by those up and about in Cranleigh High Street early on.
The only issue I have, and this is me perhaps being bitter is that it would have been nice to have got some kind of memento for winning the 21 miler. All that effort for nothing more than a verbal pat on the back makes it seem very fruitless. It even shocked those at the finish line that I was the first guy as they had no way of telling if I was part of the 15 or 21. Just maybe for future years and the next winners, a little cheap and cheerful trophy would make this run a little bit more special. Date of review: March 16, 2008
In short: A very well organised event with lots of very helpful and cheery marshalls despite the rain. Mailny country lanes with a few gentle undulations. A great pre FLM event. Date of review: March 16, 2008
