In short: Great race In full: Great to see Hackney organizing a running event, I had no problems with water and was impressed with the overall experience. Locals giving out water and cooling runners with water hoses just show you how they embraced the race. Maybe they could try and get Overland to start running a bit earlier for the event next year as it was a struggle to get there on time to start. Also first aid staff had no Vaseline to hand and in that temperature it was a must have, I would suggest a big pot at the water stations next year.
In short: Lovely Park, well organized race. In full: Nice race, good crowd. A bit muddy at some places but expected considering the weather. Lovely having the deer running around. Date of review: January 21, 2014
In short: Great run, well organized In full: Good Sunday fun, well organized, friendly marshals. This was my second race and i was hoping for a better time but track conditions didn't help so will have to try again. Date of review: January 13, 2014
In short: Not the best race, horrible route In full: Not impressed with Nike, the route was horrible, water in cups just not practical, music not the best, too many people running in too little room and not even a cereal bar after the run! All events I took part so far you get a fruit in the end to keep you going. Never again. Date of review: September 9, 2013
