In short: Flat, fast and great support by marshals In full: Despite the horrible weather conditions and the strong wind, this no-frills race was very well managed by a group of cheery, polite, enthusiastic marshals. Nice medals and energy drink provided for a cheap entry fee. I was impressed by the quick publication of results on the website despite no time chip technology was used. The multi-lap race is excellent for PB as you always try and improve your time at each lap!
In short: enjoyed today despite the weather! In full: Terrible weather today, especially just at the end where the heavens opened again. That being said, the organisers made the race run very smoothly despite the conditions. Good communication beforehand, and the lucozade in the goody bag afterwards was very handy.
Special thanks to one marshal who gave me the advice when I was running on my own, to try and catch up to a small group in front of me and use them as a pack. Such helpful advice! A step beyond the usual 'keep going, not far to go now, well done' (nice but not half so useful!) Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Well organised despite dreadful weather conditions. In full: Excellent value for money and a worthy cause (Help for Heroes). Nice engraved medal and results uploaded to www.webscorer.com in super-quick time. Looking forward to next year in better conditions, hopefully! Date of review: February 10, 2013
In short: Great Run In full: First time I had run Kenley aerodrome. A place of historical interest in it's own right, it is also supports a fantastic run. A level circuit with only a slight gradiant on the back straight, PBs are are a distinct possibility. It was easy to find with the supplied directions, the staff were all extremely helpful and it's a race we will run next year for sure. Date of review: February 5, 2012
In short: No frills 10k with excellent pb potential In full: This relatively welcoming and low key event set on a fast and flat course. Great opportunity for a pb as long as the weather holds, which it did this year. Everything worked well but I would just urge a few more signs for the entrance and a couple of marshals around the course to add atmosphere as it was a bit quiet at times. Overall, I got a huge pb and was a very happy customer. Great value! Date of review: January 30, 2012
