This is a great race put on entirely by the Clapham Chasers running & tri club. There are always lots of smiley volunteers on hand to answer questions and cheer on the runners. The goody bag is also awesome! Great "catered" long run in the build up to a marathon or just a fun event to do standalone. There's also the added bonus of not a single hill!
