In short: Brilliant Early Morning Race... In full: The wife & I (power) walked as she's got an injury, but what a great race. Lovely scenery, excellent echo in the Viaduct, Little bit of off road, couple of cracking hills and downhill for 2 miles at the end. And an 8.30 start, which means home for lunch. More races should try this. See you next year. Date of review: April 19, 2010
In short: Weather made it one to remember. In full: Living in Essex (dryest place in UK) means never get hardcore weather to run in. So rain and wind today made it challenging and special as it up the hardcore factor.
Well done everyone and see you out there. Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: Lots of weather... In full: Great race, lots of mud & puddles, bit tougher than we though it would be. Nice to see some hail, thunder & lightening. Not what we expected, but the organisers do the GRIM series as well...
Only downside was queue for mugs & t-shirt. Got very cold very quickly. Medals are quicker to handout. Date of review: November 22, 2009
In short: London in a new light In full: Did this race quite blase' about running around the sights having seen them and lived in London for 14+ years. Then did the race and that sense of woner about the Smoke came back.
Race was brilliant, getting empty goody bag and all goodies having been scoffed by sponging bluddy tourists was not. Surely should've been race numbers only for the scran!!!
Would I do it again. Not likely. Cost a lot, and there's a lot more races to be run...
In short: A nice local race In full: First 5k for wife & myself, cracked the 30 minute mark and had a nice run out. Medal & water at the finish; sandwiches, coffee & biscuits once we got our breath back. Everyone very friendly. Date of review: September 29, 2009
In short: A nice day out in Essex In full: A nice race with some excitement at the crossover (spectator wandered into path of 2nd place runner, 3rd place runner misdirected left instead of right... blimey!!)
A bit hot and should've had a bit more fuel on board, BUT enjoyed it and did the hour-ish as expected.
Thanks to all involved organising it. Date of review: July 6, 2009
