In short: Thanks for your comments In full: Many thanks for the comments about the race. We are glad that so many of you enjoyed it. There have been some questions about the last km which hopefully we have answered on our website : http://www.edmontonrc.co.uk/LeeValley2007.aspx On behalf of Edmonton RC Date of review: October 17, 2007
In short: I agree with other people that the last k seemed very long - I seemed to lose a minute in last k. In full: The stadium was great and very nice to finish around the track. The route itself was rather dull, but I thought well marshalled. I was disappointed in my time, as I thought I was on for a pb until last 1k, but feel better as others had similar experience and I find I came first in my age category!

In short: Great Sunday fun In full: Enjoyed it a lot. Found paths more than wide enough for overtaking. Scenery fairly good. Lost any hope of a good time when my pedometer came off after 100yds and I had to run around finding it :-(
Last k definitely too long. It was my slowest by 60 seconds, despite a strong sprint finish. Disappointing as I was on for a good time Date of review: October 15, 2007
In short: Friendly and well organised In full: Scenery was very variable, and the sewage works near by make the last km even harder. Lovely stadium, and it is nice to finish on a track after pounding concrete for most of it. Date of review: October 15, 2007
In short: flat, fast and well organised In full: Lea Valley athletics centre is impressive and so was the organisation of this race. Well marshalled and distance markers every KM. Refreshments available at HQ and loads of parking too.
The stretch along the water was nice and scenic but some bits were a little post-industrial.
Good race though, and flat enough for PB potential. Date of review: October 15, 2007
In short: A great run that should become a calander regular. In full: I really enjoyed this race and did a PB. The last km may have been long as it was my slowest and I was moving well at this stage and had a great friendly battle with two runners on the track finish. Facilities excellent. Medal nice. Scenery variable from the awful industrial fly tipping landscape, through suburban streets to a lovely riverside section. Flat, fast and well organised. I loved this race. I think it will grow!

In short: Well Organised, cool stadium In full: Very well organised (SO much better than the Enfield Majors 10k run!!!) Great start/finish area in the swanky new sports stadium. Nice to have a medal at the end Slightly dull route but its FAST.
