In short: Excellent all round In full: A good mix of runners and a balanced, undulating course which is almost entirely rural together with top quality marshalling and full of pb potential make this a must do, particularly at the end of the 'season'. My one contentious point was with the carparking facilities: i appreciate the difficulty from the organizers point of view but laying bloody great metal manhole covers over the ground like seesaws to dent your undercarriage cannot be a well reasoned idea.

In short: Good race, good course, good time, naff t-shirt. In full: Well organised in terms of Marshalls etc.and overall an enjoyable event. Although I got there early, i was a bit concerned about how long it would take to get out of the car park - especially as i had to get to the Arsenal game !! At the end i made a quick dash to the car and got out with no real problems, although i am sure some later runners had some horror stories to tell. Date of review: December 16, 2004
In short: an enjoyable run, well marshalled and supported In full: Race organisation fine except for mix up at the start. I arrived early and left as soon as I had collected my bag and had no problems with the car park.
In short: A few incidents spoilt this otherwise good run. In full: The start was announced to be delayed for 10mins but upon returning from the loo 7 mins later I found it had already started. Also as a slow runner, they had nearly run out of water at the third water station - I was offered a quarter of a cup! At the finish there was no clear indication of where to go after the finishing line and I nearly missed out on my T-Shirt (which was disappointingly the only memento). Beginners beware!
