In short: Excellent race In full: A superb race. Organisation excellent and a special race. The complete opposite to Run 2 the Beat which was a complete shambles. I have completed 5 Royal Parks and if I can get a place next year would love to make it 6! Date of review: October 6, 2013
In short: Hilly, rainy, Excellent In full: Well organised event. Challenging course that I underestimated being my 1st time. The hills seemed to go on forever. Marshalls excellent and a very Jolly race director.
Excellent medal and goody bag.
Tough but fair. Date of review: September 24, 2012
In short: A friendly run organised by a small charity In full: The windy conditions made the run a lot harder than it should have been on a flat course along Worthing seafront. It was a shame that more runners did not attend the event but it was the first year so can only get more popular. Having a 5k and 10k race at the same time was a nice idea and gave the real family feel to the race. Enjoyed the sweets in the goody bag and the medal will ensure I remember this windy day in Worthing. On your marks for little hearts I will see you again next year. Date of review: May 22, 2011
In short: Mud Mud Mud In full: I entered this race on the day as an alternative to my long run. The course was very muddy but added to my enjoyment of the race. The marshalling and signage on the course was superb. The organisation was excellent. Would have preferred a medal to another mug but my preference. I will be back for more next year. Well done Worthing Striders for putting on another successful race. Date of review: December 5, 2010
In short: Marshalls were a joke In full: I appreciate this was a 1st time race and it will be a classic to put in the diary for a team relay......clue organisation rant
The Marshalls were useless. It shouldn't have been hard, there were only a few directions to be given but was clearly not within their capabilities.
1)Sending our 1st runner on a 4.5mile detour killed our race. We had a chance of winning.
2)Marshalls not having a clue. I was told to go left by one and right by another at the same point. Could not tell me how far to go. All I got was "keep going" - not the most helpful marshalling.
3) 3 toilets
I have trained hard, lost 6lb in weight getting fit so I do not let my team mates down just for the organisation to ruin our race.
I do not accept the comments that we should have read instructions. The directions were not clear and the map provided (useless - see a theme here). Marshalls are there to Marshall - today they must of had a day off.
I am not a marshall hater - I respect them for giving up their time so I can enjoy running. However this morning was a joke and I hope the organisers take my comments to improve for next year. Date of review: November 28, 2010
