In short: It's already been said, 'Fun, great atmos' In full: Everyone very friendly. Country sidey bits very nice. Hilly bits not so good with slight hangover. Nice to get xmas pud at the end. Date of review: December 12, 2005
In short: Good fun run In full: only one IT glitch - which could have been disastrous as it didn't look like I was entered even tho I had my online confirmation no. Sorted out no problems - very helpful chaps Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Fantastic!!!! Superb Atmosphere!!! In full: I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this race. The atmosphere was superb. I made the effort and dressed as an angel as did my sister and Im glad we did. We really enjoyed the encouragement frm the marshalls along the way, it was just so enjoyable. Made my day!! Certainly will be there next year. Good organisation by the Swanley and District Runners. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Superb festive race!!!!! In full: Did the race in full Santa outfit. Plenty of fancy dress around, although about 80% of the field didn't make the effort which is disappointing.
Loved the course, went through the 4 mile mark in a PB by nearly a minute, which is weird considering my getup!!!!! All the mile markers were bang on as well accroding to my garmin...
The only slight niggle I would say is that it wassn't sign posted at all to get to the car park. 2 or 3 signs in Swanley town centre would have stopped me and many other driving around aimlessly trying to find the race. Well marshalled though, and good support around the start finish area. Plenty of kids around loving the mass of santas and festive surroundings. Date of review: December 11, 2005
In short: Starts the festive season off with a bang In full: Was it just my impression but are less and less people making the effort to do this in fancy dress each year. Even so some of those that did made the whole thing worth while, gorillas chickens and the usual festive costumes all made an appearance Date of review: December 11, 2005
