In short: Dartford Road Runners put the "Good" in Goody Bag In full: Great value, great organisation, great facilities, the best goody bag and not a bad race! Every race organiser should take a leaf out of Dartford Road Runners book. Date of review: October 21, 2008
In short: Excellent Organisation and a decent goody bag In full: Would be fast course if not for the 1-1.5 mile slog up hill just before mile 4 and the hill in the last mile (obviously!). In saying that the hills didn't exactly kill you either. Great facilities and goody bag, excellent organisation. Some parts were a little frustrating with cars parked over footpath, therefore forcing you onto the road. At least it was a Sunday morning so not too much traffic but still a little dangerous. Pb for me but then it was my first 10 mile race! Was a little hard to find the venue (not sure if instructions were incorrect or because we came from a different direction?) but then we were early so no panic. Date of review: January 30, 2008
In short: The slick organisation, great marshalls and generous goodie bag more than made up for my under-performance. In full: My support crew loved the facilities. I didn't run too well but the varied course was good, nice contrasts. Marshalls excellent, atmosphere good, long-sleeved Tee very nice and much better than last year's shirt. I look forward to next year. Date of review: January 26, 2008
In short: Marshalls - well done, and thank you. In full: Far from a PB (over 40 minutes slower actually! Yep I came last), but nevertheless, a great day out and the first of the year for me! Lots of Marshalls, very friendly & encouraging, 2 well located waterstations, great facilities at base.
See you next year. Date of review: January 24, 2008
