In short: Well organised race, really enjoyed starting and finishing on the athletics track. Less so the hill around the second km! It was a competitive field, mainly club runners but didn't feel exclusive. Date of review: August 21, 2011
In short: Good for a quick run out In full: No problems with the race easy to get to, and good for a quick morning run, well organised. Changing facilities & toilets awful the only bad point. Date of review: August 14, 2011
In short: Excellent value, strong field, excellent organisation, good karaoke, good scenery, no chip timing but results were posted immediately In full: Wow. I don't know where to start really. It's amazing value for money, really well organised and marshalled, great scenery, and a bit of karaoke for good measure. Oh, and the results were avilable almost immediately after the race, and that was by doing it the old fashioned way with no chip timing! Well done to all at Hercules Wimbledon who stepped in to host the event this year.
I loved the fact the start/finish were on a proper running track, especially as I hadn't run on one before so thanks for that. I liked the route, apart from the hill as it passed the All England Club and St Mary's Church. The signs for km marks were fairly clear, although I know a few runners said afterwards they couldn't see them.
Plenty of drinks and fruit post-race, as well as a bit of karaoke! And I have to repeat well done for getting the results up so quickly without chip timing, well done to all those at the finish taking down race numbers, positions and times the traditional way. There were no prizes for the mortals, but that didn't matter to me as it was more than enjoyable enough already, and it is only 5k! I'll definitely be back next year! Date of review: August 10, 2010
