In short: hilly, but fun! In full: my second time, and just as good as the first. a nice shake and banana at the finish, definately worth the journey. will be back next year, and yes i would pay extra for chip timing! Date of review: January 23, 2009
In short: Managed a pb, so good start to my first grand prix! In full: Lovely medal. Well chosen and thanks for putting info on so I know which race and year it is for. Medals of that quality inspire me to try to organise them somewhere other than in a bunch on the wardrobe doorhandle! V good HQ and facilities, we were lucky with the weather but can imagine the HQ would've been a life saver if the weather had actually been as foul as was forecast. Date of review: January 22, 2009
In short: Well organised. Good venue to start/finish. In full: Friendly, encouraging marshalls. Encountered several bottlenecks on country lane & along main road - perhaps no bad thing as helped pacing! Lost will to live on final uphill stretch. Facilities at start & finish most welcome for a January run. Useful items in goodie bag. Thank you. Date of review: January 21, 2009
In short: Seems more uphill than downhill... In full: A big well done to Dartford Road Runners for putting on a very well organised race, although the course is tougher than most, especially the first six miles or so which are generally uphill... plus another uphill section in the last mile to boot!
Plus, I liked the drinks bottle momento. So all in all a good race which I would recommend. Date of review: January 21, 2009
