Great race, really flat so good course to get a personal best, really enjoyed the fact they had goal time runners that you could follow, first time experiencing that at a race, really helped achieve new PB!

A really well organised event well marshalled by enthusiastic volunteers. Race camp had good stalls and organisation with a nice atmosphere. Plenty of pace makers and well organised start waves. A fast flat course means pbs are up for grabs. Nice goody bag. Great value for money. Will be back for this event in future.

The first two miles were very crowded on a path along a main road. A superb flat route and organisation was brilliant. An enjoyable event.

Very flat course and well marshalled so is definitely very quick and easy to navigate. Changing facilities and bag drop are on the green which can be muddy this time of year so might be worth bringing a second pair of shoes to avoid your race shoes gathering too much mud. Overall a fantastic race

Really enjoyed this well organised race. The route is cleverly planned to keep away from traffic even when crossing Kingston Bridge and with lots of water points there was no need to carry a bottle. Start and finish were both really efficient with a good crowd to cheer all along the route to keep us going. Somehow the organisers even managed to provide the perfect weather :) .Will definitely be attempting this again.
