In short: Well organised local race In full: Did this in 2006 and enjoyed it again today despite little training. Well organised, efficient feed stations, and good course. Seem to work well with the police, council, parking companies, canon's gym etc etc all helping out on the day. Still bit too busy in the early stages, so maybe more staggered starts and chip timing ? Bag service better in the theatre, away from finish area. Not surprisingly the support is a bit patchy away from the market square but some very enthusiastic marshalls and locals just after hampton bridge.
Race overviews mentions T-Shirt but that's and extra £12 (£10 on the day as they'd run out of change), and I for one would prefer a medal to a mug but will definetly be back again. Date of review: March 30, 2008
In short: Good suburban race, challenging enough, dodgy mile markers, quick results on the day. In full: Tesco race is probably a good description for this leafy suburban course. A few mins walk from home, pretty good organisation, but a complete set of mile/km markers would have been a great help. Good value for what it is, prefer this sort of low key event to mass participation melees. Easy parking and public transport, would get many more starters with little promotion locally.
