In short: A course of two halves In full: First time of doing this one although I had done the Dartford Half a few years back. The first half is more up than down with a couple of hills to negotiate. The second half is mainly downhill or flat with a great long downhill bit between miles 5-7. There is a sting in the tail though with a tough windy hill to nail at the 9 mile marker.
Marshalls very encouraging, very well organised overall and grabbed a PB today too so, although it is an undulating course, treat the early hills with respect and get your foot down on the downhills and a PB is on the cards. Date of review: January 17, 2010
In short: Well organised, well marshalled event, slightly challenging!! In full: Some tough hills but some good down hill bits as well. Great weather, nice location, very well organised. Well done Dartford. Will be back to try again. As some others have mentioned, would prefer medal. Date of review: January 17, 2010
In short: Nice race, superb organisation. In full: Great race, quite hilly (more than I was expecting)and some slightly hairy runnnig along roads with cars quite close, but overall a really enjoyable run. Date of review: January 17, 2010
