In short: Excellent 10k In full: Incredibly well organised, nice flat course with great views of London. I have done the British 10k for the last 3 years but got tired of the nightmare at the start. With the start organised in waves, this race is far superior!! Date of review: May 31, 2010
In short: Great fun and excellent event In full: Battersea park is a great location and a lovely flat route. We were also blessed with wonderful weather! So much fun seeing everyone dressed as santa and thought the orgnisation at the beginning was great (although those who arrived a bit later had to queue for ages). Very funny seeing everyone dressed as santa and a great race for beginners. My friends and I will be there next year. Date of review: December 7, 2008
In short: Average Race, but I still would have liked a medal! In full: I was not feeling my best on Sunday so perhaps my feelings towards this race are a little more negative than they should be.
Overall the atmosphere and organisation were good. Very glad that timing chips were provided and results available so quickly.
I would say that describing this race as flat is a little misleading, I felt that I was either running up or down hill the whole course!
The queues for the toilets and baggage did look long but luckily I did not need to use either so it did not affect me.
I was impressed by all the food in the goody bag, although a little sad that there was no medal!
Overall I did not feel like this is a race that I particularly want to do again, it was quite a long way for me to travel to and there was nothing that made it really stand out for me above other 10k races that I have done. Date of review: November 3, 2008
