In short: Lovely medal & t-shirt, quiet closed roads In full: Bit soul-destroying in the last 2 miles going round and round the track with the finish line moving backwards & forwards. Rest of the course great on closed roads although could make better use of the Thames Path for scenic value rather than running along Walton Lane. Lovely medal & t shirt, would do again.

In short: Brilliant (but pricey) half marathon In full: Been to Mercedes World before and knew the track would be a quick start. Wasn't as flat as i'd thought which slowed me down a little but definite PB course if you are ready for a few inclines. Baggage drop, car parking and closed roads made this pretty flawless. My kids want me to race it again so that they can be abandoned with the cars! Lol Date of review: March 25, 2015
In short: Perfect conditions for this well organised event In full: Great medal and technical shirt, full road closures, parking supplied near the start/finish, very well marshalled, well organised. I had originally thought it a little pricey, but all things considered it's good value overall.
In short: Excellent and professional race organization, fast and traffic-free route In full: Marshals along the route were very professional, fast and traffic-free route with first 3-4 kms + final 3-4 kms on the flat Mercedes-Benz test track. Great event for runners and for spectators (they can sit at the Mercedes-Benz Centre's coffee shop near the start-finish. Byfleet rail station just 15-20 mins walk from the start.

In short: Great run. Fab facilities. Enjoyable route In full: For me, this was a great race. The route was varied and helped by perfect weather for running. The last 2 miles back on the track were a bit of a drag but at least we knew what to expect. The start was fine as there were not huge numbers but could end up being chaotic with more runners. The Weybridge residents who did come out so early with the clocks changing were very supportive, even the man in his dressing gown. I really enjoyed my day and hope this race continue to grow. Well done 2.09 Date of review: March 30, 2014
