Dan - I might be running the FH10 this year as it's a club champs race, but will be on car park duty beforehand. It's very well organised/marshalled (obviously). It's not a particularly fast course - no massive hills but continually undulating, so maybe 1-2 mins slower than optimal. There are two possible routes depending on whether a particular spot is flooded or not - if not, it is a figure of eight (fine except a bit sketchy at the "crossover" if there is a pack near the back, but normally fine). If it is flooded, it becomes two laps, which is a bit more annoying having to overtake backmarkers.
Clearly the weather can be poor at that time of year, but I'm afraid I can't help with that.
Ryan - fair play, like I said, I wouldn't have the confidence to go with that plan but will be great if it works out. And as you say, a great base for London either way.
No running today as I've got a work social thing this evening, but managed a few exercises before breakfast this morning (single leg squats etc.).
