In short: Good first effort. Nice scenic run, some tough hills. In full: Really enjoyable day. Pleasant run in the countryside but tough hills which would make the marathon quite daunting (I did the half). Met a couple of good guys from the Ashford tri club. Would do it again - and will probably give the marathon a go one day... Date of review: April 20, 2015
In short: Really enjoyed the course In full: Great effort and thoroughly enjoyable. Would gladly recommend. Only real gripes were a predictably crowded start (move it outside the gates?) and slight issue with distance. Date of review: September 21, 2014
In short: Overpriced with some organisational failings In full: Similar complaints to other reviewers. Mile markers, mis-selling 'Olympic Park', poorly organised start and fudged final 3 miles. Course not flat - mildly undulating. I did enjoy it but would hope that lessons are learnt as could have been so much better. Date of review: June 23, 2014
In short: Tough but enjoyable In full: Tough run but was always sold as 'challenging'. Great finish and well marshalled throughout.
The kids fun run was a disaster. If my kids had have run past me I'd have hauled them out - must have been quite frightening for some of them. Not fair on the kids or the half runners. Date of review: August 28, 2012
