In short: A pleasent enough race. In full: This is pleasently scenic route through some of kent's best countyside. But don't let this lure you into a force sense of security, this is a hard course with 2 very sizeable climbs & a whole host of nasty undulations.
My one concern was that the organisation was not quite as good this year, a hap-hazard start where the starter did not call us forward to the line and a hooter living running not quite sure if the race had started or not! The lack of water supplies at the end of the race was poor. The waterstation operators only had enough water a couple of us mid-field runners, and slower runners were left without.

In short: Gorgeous scenery combined with beautiful sunny day In full: Lovely run in the countryside through Bridge & Patrixbourne with a couple of hills on a gorgeous sunny day - what more can you ask for? Good encouragement from marshalls & Park & Ride worked really well too. Date of review: January 28, 2008
In short: Beautiful Course, very crowed start. In full: Very sceanic. The start was very crowded it was hard to overtake for the first 2 miles. The Marshalls were not as enthusiastic as at other events. But a lovely race and great course with lovely off road sections around the fields of Kent. Date of review: January 28, 2008
In short: I really enjoyed this one In full: The organisation was good and the atmosphere great for serious and non-srious runners. The course is nice, mostly on country lanes and tracks. The weather for this year was glorious and despite being a bit hilly (worst one at 4 miles and another gentle one at 7) it is a relatively fast course. It's the 3rd time I've done this one and I'll be back for more. On the downside, the mile 3 marker was at 2.8 miles, and the showers were stone cold, but maybe if I'd run faster I'd have got some of the hot! I highly recommend this race.
