In short: nice run, but orgainsation could have been better In full: Bad-Delays checking in, causing late start.No one looking after bags at drop off!!!.time clock wrong at finish, goodie bag! Good- Nice run, plenty of marhalls. Date of review: October 27, 2012
In short: First time Croydon 10k runner and well impressed! In full: Very well organised race. Marshals were very encouraging! It is undulating and narrow in places but much better than having a looped route. Great race, will be back in 2012! Date of review: October 24, 2012
In short: Local race otherwise would not be running it. In full: New race organisers - Nice Work - so a few teething issues, start mat not the full widith of the road, time markers the wrong way around, car face clock not stated when the race was. Race late in starting. And whose idea was it to take the race route off road and along a single mud track besides Oaks Road? I know they wanted to keep us off the road for safety reasons but it was more safe on the road than it was trying to get all runners going down the same single track.
In full: Positives - Well marshalled, good atmosphere. Negatives - over crowding at the start made it difficult to get going,distance markers were not accuratley placed, the timing clock at the end of the race was fast by about 80 seconds so lots of runners were left dissapointed with their actual time. This was pointed out early on to the officials and I am not sure why they didn't turn the clock off? Date of review: October 22, 2012
In short: Very enjoyable, not to hard, would do this one again In full: Very enjoyable, this is only my 5th 10K and jus of 60 it was not to taxing, as long as you don't go of to fast to start with, only problem can't find out my time, hopefully will turn up soon, recommended enjoy Date of review: October 22, 2012
In short: Friendly well run race in lovely weather In full: It is a pity that so much is on pavements but I didn't have to stop for traffic at all and got a reasonable time (a PB but I haven't done many races. It all seemed to run pretty well Date of review: October 16, 2011
In short: Worth getting up for! In full: My first time running this event and was pleased I did. Was disappointed at not getting a goody bag despite finnishing well inside 45 minutes!
My other gripe was why not stagger the start? with chip timing this should not be an issue. I spent the first 3 k either being stuck behind slower runners on narrow paths or having to run in the busy road to pass. Date of review: October 16, 2011
