In short: An enjoyable romp around Richmond Park In full: Before the event I was not looking forward to it as I became aware that it was a 13.4 mile course, and the start was to be staggered (and not based on your pace).
As it turned out, I thoroughly enjoyed this low key event. There were no problems with the staggered start, and passing slower runners was easy enough. Clocking your own time at 13.1 miles is easy enough, and chip timing is provided at 13.4m. There were one of two road crossings where I had to come to a halt which was annoying, but that's life.
Fantastic support from all the volunteer Mashals - well done to them for their constant support on a very wet day.
Well done to the Stroke Association for putting this event on. Date of review: March 5, 2012
