In short: An excellent race for all abilities In full: I was pleasantly surprised with this race. I did not know what to expect when I cycled up from South London to the Lee Valley. What I found was great organisation, a pretty run widing along paths through the marsh land, space to run, chip timing, a fast course (I got a PB) and lots of happy marshals.
In short: Peaceful, scenic, flat, well organised. In full: This was a fast, flat course (season's best - thank you!) and the organisation was faultless. Loads of marshalls all over the course and most were very encouraging (especially the 2 kids at about 7K). There was a very relaxed atmosphere and the route was extremely peaceful (shame some runners still want to drown out the peace or chance of a conversation by wearing iPods but that is no fault of the organisers). The steel band brightened up a dreary day and my post race bacon butty was perfect. could you put a postcode on the website for my sat nav next year though? Well done, great race.
