In short: Superb! In full: Very well organised right from the parking, all the way to the finish line. Plenty of marshalling - km markers seemed to be accurate, although I didn't use my Garmin, just by the timings.
Plenty of water stations and loads of room to run on a well thought out flat course. Roads closed, so traffic free, although most of the run was on the seafront and around the park. I would definitely do it again and would highly recommend to new runners. Date of review: September 16, 2012
In short: Don't get your Hampton Court! In full: I'm saddened to read that the course was short, having smashed my PB by 2 minutes! However, I don't think it was as short as everyone says. I run regular 5min 20secs/km on flat ground - For the first 7 km, I ran close to this pace. The 8th km took me well over 6 minutes (not sure exactly how long) and the 9th was very short as everyone has said. At the time, I thought that someone had moved the 8km marker for a laugh and that the course was still 10 km. Has anyone actually measured the course? I'd really like to know the full distance. By my time, I'm sure it was in excess of 9km. The water station was a joke, but I don't want to harp on too much, the weather was strange for the time of year, having said that the water situation was no better at Petworth Park earlier in the summer. Please sort it out for next year if you want the races to continue to be successful - Thank you Date of review: October 27, 2006
In short: Soaked! In full: A great day, ruined only by (no,not the weather!)slow runners in the early waves! Please stop doing it - if you want to run with your faster friends, then please do so, but do it in the Green Wave. I was lucky enough to be right at the front of the Green Wave, so I was traffic free for a couple of miles. I would have been really peeved if I'd been in the White wave and stuck behind all the walkers. Ok, moan over! Thank you to all the volunteers who took the time to come and get soaked with us - You really made the day! Oh, I kissed Vicky Binns from Coronation Street at the end of the race too - Dining out on it :) Date of review: October 24, 2006
