In short: Great location In full: It was a nice touch having bananas before the race however there are a few things that could have been better. There was a real lack of toilets and the pubs facilities couldnt cope. Some portaloos would be good next year. Also the first section of the race is quite tight so its tricky to over take. Perhaps starting the race on a different part of the course would help with this, and the toilet situation. There wasn't any water at the end of the race (that I could find). Not sure if this was in the goody bags that were stolen along side the medals though. Lovely area though and feel sorry for the organisers having things stolen prior to the race.

In short: Nice and flat along the Thames, beautiful way to spend 40 minutes In full: Lovely little looping flat course along the Thames. Well organised, nice to start and end at the pub, very social and friendly. Shame that the medals got stolen, they looked really good, would have been a nice addition to the collection, they really are some scumbags around Date of review: December 11, 2012
In short: Friendly and Fast In full: A very well organised first time event. Apart from the slightly congested start, I have no complaints at all. It was a scenic and fast rote, and enjoyed the mud! Was also a nice touch that race times and positions were communicated at the end of the race.
Will definitely be back in 2012. Date of review: October 31, 2011
