In short: overall good, but pricey and slightly under distance In full: The race distance is short of 9 miles, probably 500 metres and the parking of race support vehicles 30 metres after the start meant the bulk of runners were immediately slowed to a walk as the road width start abruptly narrowed, otherwise very well organised race and venue( 4 minute jog from home!!)

In short: I had a really fantastic time here, even though this was only my second ever race. I agree with all the great comments about this event but the only thing i would say is that i would advise any late entries or turn up on the day entrants to get .. In full: there early because it was an awful squeeze to get in and out of the working mens club.
In short: A well organised and friendly race In full: A very well organised race. The goody bag is extremely generous and there were lots of nice touches that make it different...especially the distance of 9 miles. Date of review: October 31, 2007
In short: Friendly atmosphere. Varied route In full: Band under the M25 playing Chariots of Fire an amusing start. Pleasing goody bag but given the choice would prefer a bar of Cadbury's over a penguin. No pleasing some people. Organisers should just be thankful am not blaming them for weather.

In short: Good, well organised race In full: Pity about the rain but everything else about the race appeared to run like clockwork. Mementoes & goody bag (mug, T-shirt, RR Race linen bag, bananas & Penguin)although almost missed the mug, & others back in the WM Club had missed collecting theirs. Course okay, no difficulties experienced (as in reports for previous years) with drivers/traffic. And a very friendly taxi driver from 'Tudor Cars' too! Date of review: October 31, 2007
