In short: Fantastic run in a beautiful south london park In full: This race caters for all types of runners, from the 1st timers to the the fast runners. It's mainly flat, 1/2 road and 1/2 on grass. The race started on time and marshalls were very helpful and ladies had smiles on their faces despite the strong gusts of wind on the day. Keep the good work and hopefully see you next year.

In short: Organisation: A SHAMBLE!!! GREAT ROUTE TO RUN THOUGH In full: Arrived at 8.45am but had to queue for the Chip for 40mins. Why the Chip was not sent with the number? Queued to drop the bag (10mins): Think of a new system to collect the bags from runners for 2010!!! Definetely in need of largest marquees!! 10 LOOS FOR 1500!!!! YOU ARE HAVING A LAUGH!! another queue to tackle. Queues everywhere!!! Race started with no announcements and late hence everyone was running to the start line headless chickens. Not enough marshalls along the route, especially along the river and at the end to direct runners towards the finishing line. Organisers must become more aware with Health safety and organising such a large event. You can't have people queueing for their bags, medals and goody bags so close to the finishing line. Will give it a try next year, maybe, if no improvement: bye bye Richmond 10k for me. Date of review: November 8, 2009
In short: Great Morning for a Special Race. In full: Despite an early wake up call from the thunderstom, the sun came out shinning on this race. Very friendly marshalls; Prompt Start at 10am. The route could be regarded as challenging for a 1st timer but great potential for a runner. Highly recommended and a must do next year!! Date of review: June 7, 2009

In short: Great race in a superb location In full: Great race in a beatiful park with fantastic weather condition to run this 5k. Very friendly marshalls along the course with a medal at the finish. A "must do" for next year for non-runner or competitive runners.
In short: Fantastic race and highly recommended!! In full: 1st time I ran this 10k. Organisation was fantastic, great marshalls along the route. Never had bagels served to me at the end of a race, nice gesture!! The medal was superb and original and the goody bag was fantastic. Thanks for the fantastic towel as I left mine home, that was a life saver. :) another water stand should be organised for next year at the opposite end of the park for next year. See you again next year!! Date of review: August 17, 2008
In short: Great organisation for a fantastic race. A must do!! In full: My 1st ever 20 miles race with a scenic route all the way. I thought I would get bored running 4 laps but to the contrary. Great supporting Marshalls all over the course with plenty of water till the end. This race must be ran if you prepare a marathon. I might be running it again next year. Congrats to the organisers!!
In short: A "Must Run" Race with gorgeous scenary with a glorious sun. In full: Prompt 09.45am start. Friendly runners and uplifting cheers along the route, specially towards and at the end. Shame the medals ran out; however the event organisers posted a message, on Sunday afternoon, on the website to inform the runners without a medal to contact them directly to rectify this problem. Additionally, my finishing time came by text to my mobile within 2 hours and all results were posted on website within 24 hrs. I hope to take part in 2009. Fantastic race!!!! KEEP IT UP!!
