In short: Challenging and fun! In full: Second year running and just as good (if not as cold) this time. Some slight issues with Marshalling as I saw runners allowed to go the wrong way within feet of them twice, but overall very good. Date of review: January 27, 2008
In short: classic 10 miler In full: Great race through some lovely countryside. Slightly varied surface (but road shoes do fine), lots of incline (but no really big hills), and wind to consider too. Miles marked accurately.
Everything that a 10 mile should be. See you next year. Date of review: November 11, 2007
In short: flat, fast and well organised In full: Lea Valley athletics centre is impressive and so was the organisation of this race. Well marshalled and distance markers every KM. Refreshments available at HQ and loads of parking too.
The stretch along the water was nice and scenic but some bits were a little post-industrial.
Good race though, and flat enough for PB potential. Date of review: October 15, 2007
In short: well organised and challenging enough In full: Mixed terrain (fields, paths and footpaths- nothing too nasty) and enough ups and downs to keep you interested. Field was just the right size and weather was great- markers at every K too.
Very good race- never enjoyed a banana so much. Date of review: September 30, 2007
