In short: Nice friendly race In full: Well organised start and finish, and helpful marshalls. Scenic route: mixture of Surrey countryside and some nice Esher real estate. A bit muddy due to heavy rain earlier in the week. Nice medal... shame no clock or times. Date of review: May 15, 2008
In short: Very well organised, with plenty of helpful marshalls In full: In summmary, an excellent event ideal for a bank holiday.
The only down-side to the race was the self-timing feature with NO CLOCK! This is political correctness gone too far. I have been doing races of over thirty years and you always get your time and position recorded. Indeed, I have also helped at races with time recording and so I know exactly how important this detail is to race administration and the competitors alike. Date of review: May 7, 2008
In short: Hard going because of the recent rain on mud tracks, good course otherwise In full: Was my first 10k and I really enjoyed it. It was quite nice that my first one was quite low key and I'd certainly say that its a nice starter for beginners regardless of ability. I wasn't really running for a place so that didn't bother me although a clock would seem an obvious improvement. other than that well pleased with my first run!!! Date of review: May 7, 2008
In short: Not one for the PB. quite a bit of thick mudded tracks to navigate. very low-key race. seemed quite quiet compared to others iv been to. good track though, even if it would challenge the beginner. Only compaint: there was no clock. Date of review: May 7, 2008
In short: Very friendly and well organised except for the lack of results In full: Very well organised race with friendly and encouraging marshals. Well signed and nice medals! Such a shame that you were not able to give finishing places. We can all do our own times but it would have been nice to know if I was in the top half or third etc. Date of review: May 6, 2008
