In short: Glorious race through glorious London In full: This was my 3rd time running this and it was as good as previous years. Great for all levels of runner and magnificant organisation from the team behind the London marathon.
My only gripe is the one size T shirt (large) as some of us ladies would prefer a small. I like the fact that it's a technical T shirt but unfortunately it will end up at the bottom of my wardrobe again.
I will be signing up again for next year! Date of review: May 31, 2010
In short: Great facilities and brunch but not 10K In full: Despite the awful weather, I enjoyed this mornings experience. It was great to have somewhere warm and dry to wait before the race and the post-race brunch was excellent. I've scored the organisation down as I'm not convinced it was 10K as my Garmin only measured 9.45km (it's usually reliable so I have no reason to doubt its accuracy today). My supposed PB will not stand in my log. Date of review: February 28, 2010
In short: As others have said - forget the PB and just enjoy! In full: This was tough going for my first off-road race but I enjoyed the glorious scenery and friendly atmosphere. I will be back... Date of review: June 22, 2009
In short: Very very disappointed In full: I agree with most other reviewers. Positives: Good T shirts Negatives: 1. Evening run but not advertised as such before signing up 2. Little information on what time the run started 3. Hanging around having to listen to the bands - surely everyone just wanted to run 4. The start - very very narrow 5. Annoying marshalls shouting out the KM markings well before getting there 6. Route - industrial estate, Tesco's - enough said
In short: Shame about the weather but a great race In full: Loved this run - although weather was awful it certainly added to the atmosphere. Agree with other about the stones at Leadenhall market - would have made sense to cover them as very slippy. T shirt is very good quality but as it's way to big it'll probably end up at the bottom of my draw (why couldn't they provide different sizes like at the BUPA Great Runs?). Will definitely be back next year! Date of review: May 26, 2008
