In full: A fantastic race, set in the beautiful surrounds of Richmond Park. Although it lacked the crowds of a big city marathon, there was excellent support from the marshalls (total respect to you all - thank you!), park goers and the very vocal contingent from Ealing Eagles running club, who were out in force.

In short: One for all abilities, especially beginners In full: It's the first time that I have run this race and, contrary to some of the negative comments about the previous year's event, I thought it was a well organised, very friendly run on a great course, with the proceeds going to a very worthwhile charity.
In short: excellent marshalls and support In full: ticked all the boxes for me. well done and many thanks to the organisers and many volunteers for making this such a success!!! Date of review: June 10, 2007
In short: excellent racing experience In full: this was my third 10k race at victoria park in 2006 and whilst i enjoyed the previous two, this was by far my favourite. i would strongly recommend this race to all, regardless of ability, as the friendly atmosphere generated really is second to none.

In short: how hot was it???? In full: I felt this was a really good race experience, with the excellent organisation and atmosphere making it special. The only downside was the excessive heat (thank god for the sponges!!), which prevented me from getting anywhere near my PB. It might be worth the organisers looking at a 9-10am start next year. I'll definitely take part next year. Date of review: July 16, 2006
