In short: 3 laps of victoria park, east london. In full: Nice lil run to take part in, good mix of runners all running to raise funds for Barts & The London Charity, organisation was good, race stewards did their best to motivate you as you went past, would run again, very worthy cause too.

In short: Well organised and great for a PB In full: Really good race and well organised. Would defnitely suggest a 10am start for next time but the three laps for me were great and well worth my 43:45 pb!! Date of review: June 13, 2010
In short: Well organised race In full: I feel that some of the other comments are unfair. Please remember that this is a charity race.
I think this race offers value for money and was well organised. It is flat and offers a good route for beginners as well as club runners.
There were plenty of toilets including urinals for men and they were 800m from the start, which is not too far!
As improvements I would suggest an earlier start and not giving water out 800m after the start. This is probably the reason along with some people taking more than 1 bottle that there was no water at the finish.
The medals and chip timing were a good idea. And the BBQ, tea/coffee and ice cream van was a nice touch.
We will be back next year. Date of review: June 16, 2009
