In short: Nice and flat and improved on last year In full: Lovely morning and a good flat course. Has improved since last year, two laps rather than three and on wide tracks at the start rather than skinny paths.
I thought there were enough marshalls and although there was only one water station it's only a 10K! Not having km markers was a problem though - and is my GPS up the spout or was that 200m over 10K? Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Scenic, flat and nice goodie bag too., In full: Regents Pk great to run around. But the park so used by the public that you've got to keep your wits about you - almost tripped over a Jack Russell myself. The Marshalls were only apparent at the road intersections so just as well someone in front knew the route. So not all smooth but overall a good atmosphere and a fast course. I had a good day and would definately do this one again. The G bag isnt the thing but this one put some other events to shame, muesli, 2 chewy fruit bars, fruit strips, massage gel and er..a bottle of eco washing up liquid... and innocents fruit drink from a table as well. Perhaps an earlier start and watch the numbers are in order to get this one 100%. Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Started off well but not enough marshalls In full: Started off well with an energetic warm up and a nice atmosphere. No hold ups at the start and very smoothly organised. Then I realised there were no 1KM markers despite all the literature saying there would be. There were nowhere near enough marshalls, especially for a big park such as Regent's that is full of runners on every surface possible. I also heard one of the marshalls talking about running out of water which is criminal on such a hot day in exposed areas. 10Ks really need two water stations IMHO anyway.

In short: fast course, but no km markers or marshalls In full: nice route around regents park, very flat two laps, PB potential is high. no km markers nor marshalls which is bizarre because i saw a guy with them before the race started so i dunno what he did with the. only one water station, bit rubbish. atmosphere was nice and light, just a fun day really Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Good London 10k In full: If you're going to give out a doggy bag, put something in it- a crunchy bar and a couple of leaflets isnt worth the hassle. TAUT drink is OK, but cant seem to buy it anywhere. Date of review: October 10, 2005
