In short: Lovely local race In full: As ever this was a brilliantly organised scenic, completely off road run in the beautiful Lee Valley. Marshalls were great. The best part as always for me is running the 3k fun run with my children after the 10k. The kids love it and everyone loves seeing young children out running. Medal, tee-shirt, drink. You could even have a massage. Best 10k/fun run of the year. Date of review: July 16, 2013
In short: Cool race on a hot, hot day In full: Almost a perfect local 10k race: scenic surroundings, good organisation, a flat well-marshalled course and a lovely day. Yes the temperature was 23C at the start but I guess that's what you risk in July. Was the course a little short or was that just my Garmin being thrown out by the twists and turns? Definitely back next year - thanks Date of review: July 15, 2013
In short: An excellent race for all abilities In full: I was pleasantly surprised with this race. I did not know what to expect when I cycled up from South London to the Lee Valley. What I found was great organisation, a pretty run widing along paths through the marsh land, space to run, chip timing, a fast course (I got a PB) and lots of happy marshals.
In short: Peaceful, scenic, flat, well organised. In full: This was a fast, flat course (season's best - thank you!) and the organisation was faultless. Loads of marshalls all over the course and most were very encouraging (especially the 2 kids at about 7K). There was a very relaxed atmosphere and the route was extremely peaceful (shame some runners still want to drown out the peace or chance of a conversation by wearing iPods but that is no fault of the organisers). The steel band brightened up a dreary day and my post race bacon butty was perfect. could you put a postcode on the website for my sat nav next year though? Well done, great race.

In short: Lovely scenery. In full: A great local run, very well marshalled and organised. Lovely scenery sround the Lee Valley marshes and wetlands made for an enjoyable Sunday morning 10km. Many thanks to the organisers! Date of review: May 20, 2012
In short: Excellent course & good value In full: The course winds around the Lee Valley park around Cheshunt / Waltham Abbey. Almost completely flat, one nice bridge over the lock at about 5k but nothing major. T shirt is nice, would be good to get a medal as well! Date of review: July 28, 2011
In short: Great course and well organised In full: Thoroughly enjoyed the event. My first 10k in quite a while and my girlfriends 1st (I think she enjoyed it as she's still talking to me). The event isn't over subscribed (which is a bonus) and plenty of room to stretch your legs so theres PB potential. Very hard to fault. Cheap to enter and very well organised. Scenic course and good atmosphere. Was warm but not too bad. Thanks to all the Lee Valley Park volunteers! Date of review: July 12, 2011
