In short: Worst organised race that I have done. In full: Sat Nav took us to the wrong entrance to the racecourse. Surely someone should have stood at the wrong entrance? After realizing our mistake it took 45 minutes to turn around and park. Pure greed to charge £6 which caused additional tail backs.
The route was a real disappointment - too much roads and too little running along the riverbank. The Thames 1/2 makes much better use of the River.
Bag collection was poor but very good medal and goody bag. Shame as I was pleased with my time! Date of review: February 22, 2016

In short: Gets better & better In full: 3rd time of running & having run it seriously, decided to enjoy the wine at the numerous stops. Fantastic organisation, incredible medal, great day out. About 12 people from my club entered the race, next year I suspect there will be twice as many. Thanks ETL. Date of review: September 15, 2014

In full: This has to be the best organized race I have ever been to. The organizers had gone the extra length to put in loads of water/sponge stations due to the stifling heat.Thank you Wadhurst Runners. Due to the heat the race was hard and unlike last year I had to walk up the hills and was 20 minutes slower. But, it didn't matter the scenery and setting are 1st class. Medal and goody bag and cakes at the end were much appreciated. Well done to every one who was involved. I will be back for a 3rd year in 2014. Date of review: July 8, 2013
In full: Fantastically orgainsed race and a brilliant way to start the New Year. Very hard and very muddy. Fancy dress was brilliant I went as Virgil from Thunderbirds and couldn't stop laughing when I slipped over and someone chirped up "Thunderbirds are Gone!".
Thanks to Dr Rob and the marshalls ypou can all be proud of allowing us runners a fantastic start to the New Year. Date of review: January 2, 2013
