In short: Great race, realy enjoyed it. In full: Great organisation. Comprehensive race pack sent out in plenty of time and good updates on the race Facebook page. I was worried about finding somewhere to park but was impressed with race officials lining the A26 into Tunbridge Wells handing out maps and advising on where there were spaces etc. The whole organistaion was very slick considering the number of runners and the relative lack of space etc to get 2800 runners started. The race itself was scenic and apart from Spring Hill seemed to be gently undulating with plenty of downhill stretches and alot of local support along the way. Marshalls were brilliant and all in all I think it was a really enjoyable race. It seems from reading other reviews that they ran out of goody bags which must have been a shame for those that didn't get one and you do wonder why some runners felt the need to take 2 if that was the case? Will hopefully be back next year!! Date of review: February 26, 2012

In short: Great race, lovely weather, super medal. In full: Loved this race which was well organised and over a lovely undulating scenic route with only one really horrible hill near the end which was steep but quite short. I also liked the 8.30 start.
The only bit I didn't like was the run along the road back to the village with the traffic whizzing by but other than that I really enjoyed it.
The medal was well above average and the Sweatshop voucher appreciated.
I'll be back next year without a doubt. Date of review: April 10, 2011
