Hi all, has anyone registered and paid online and not received a confirmation email yet? this happened to me yesterday. I have e-mailed the race organiser at energized sport but did not get a very useful reply....

I am a little worried as the race is only in 2 weeks time!

Hmmm, was about to sign up but that is a bit concerning - anyone else had confirmation?

11/08/2014 at 15:32

I got confirmation instantly that I signed up

Same here - just signed up and confirmation straight away.  All booked - wil be driving up from Winchester if anyone wants a lift from anywhere reasonable. Train well!

I entered a few evenings ago but didn't get any confirmation email although on screen it said I was confirmed - wrote email to organisers and no reply - frustrating - had heard some disturbing things about some of their previous event organising ...hmmm, anyone else same ??

Hi

Energized sports are doing another one of these (on pretty much the same route it looks like) in October. Would those who did this event in august recommend it? PB potential?  I'm trying to get a place for the Royal Parks Half but if I can't (very likely) this could be an alternative.

Overall, the event was good.  Lots of marshall in the right places and a nice start finish area.  The course is flat but I'm not sure about PB material as there are lots and lots of 90 degree turns that slow you down.  Plus the start and finish on grass takes a wee bit more out of you.  There were a few people to didge round getting up onto Putney bridge on the second lap too.

Ok, good to know. Thanks for your reply Marcus

You're welcome

I did it and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was - well organised and a great bunch of comrade runners - no problem free parking, cheering marshals, maybe the waterstations were a bit undermanned, and a nice scenic mixed route which was getting busier with other users as the time moved on.  I would recommend this event.  My time was a little slower than I expected, and I can only guess reasons as Marcus said.

The 2015 Putney and Fulham Half happened yesterday (12th April) and just thought I'd post up a few comments.  All in all, a really enjoyable race.  Very well marshaled, not too packed (I'd say around 600ish ran...), nice flat course.  Loads of 90 degree turns which stop any kind of momentum but it does make it a bit more interesting and a bit of pedestrian dodging here and there but all in all, I'd recommend it.  

The last stretch being on grass sure takes it out of out legs though but I smashed my PB so everyones happy!

A good update - thanks JustArran.  I'd never thought of this event before but I have one (very) important question.

How close to the pubs is the fnish line for post-race re-hydration?

14/04/2015 at 08:27

I did this race on Sunday - certainly couldn't fault the organisation /marshalling and a nice route, mainly along the river. I would definitely consider doing it again. The nice weather was a bonus too!

It was interesting to see the detritus resulting from the boat race (or rather boat race related partying) the day before as we ran along the river.

You wouldn't have too wander too far to find a pub andyp!

Thanks CB69 - I'll add to my wish list!
