In short: A great way to see all the sights of London. Entry fee is rather steep and the quality of the medal is very poor and no chip timing either. Although the atmosphere is fantastic and is the only reason I might do it again Date of review: October 10, 2008
In short: Don't waste your money on this one!! In full: Over-priced, poorly organised, no clock, timings or chip for £30 entrance. Was even given the wrong medal at the end. Total rip off and there are plenty of other races in and around London that offer much much more. ASICS should be ashamed of themselves. Date of review: August 22, 2008
In short: Outrageously over-priced, poorly organised & far too busy. In full: No chip timing, no predicted time pens at the start & not even a clock as you cross the start line. Far too many people for this ever to be a success. I'll never be doing it again. Date of review: July 27, 2008
In short: Took my entry fee, didn't send me an entry pack & now won't refund me In full: Overall not very impressed by the organisation. Not sure why for such a large event they can't offer an email facility if you have a query. Instead you have to write AND provide an SAE if you want a response. 3 weeks after writing and still no response. Am beginning to doubt I'll see my race entry fee again.
In short: Please, please, pleassee.... improve it or kill this race off!!! In full: Returned to this after a one year break. Still over-priced but as you are running in London not surprising. Poor medal smaller than previous years. Goody bag - ideal for putting some shopping in on the way home. Officials - some good but many didn`t care what they were doing. The only good points were the support on the course and the course itself. Start area - a joke. If you going to do a mass race, bring in zones for fast runners at the front, slower at the back or staggered start. Lack of chip timing. Organisation, you can pay the same money and get better treatment. Even smaller 10k`s are better too. Ideal for a fun runner but for the experience, one to avoid at all costs.
