Beautiful riverside run, challenging and fast event . Incredibly friendly Marshall’s and organisers.

The weather conditions leading up to the event were pretty apocalyptic; overnight storms, heavy rain, blustery winds and lots of standing water. The rain eased off just before the start but there were massive puddles to contend with over the whole course (60% of which was on narrow riverside paths). This certainly impacted numbers which is probably just as well. The event was chip timed (a rarity these days) which was a pity and probably explained why results have yet to appear online. Organisers / marshals were very supportive, nice and kind.

Once we got going, the 2-lap course alongside the thames was very enjoyable. The heavy overnight/on the day rain made for perfect conditions of a classic squelchy/puddle ridden run. The event was not your usual ‘high volume’ attendance type event .. ie not too much pre/post event thrills .. get over that and you’ll enjoy the event for what it is .. turn up, get your number, enjoy your run, get your medal, go home .. sunday morning ticked !!

Not too congested as lower numbers this year. Very friendly marshalls, new course next year making better use of tow path....I hope!

Signposting for registration would have been helpful. Race Director was a man of few words and off we go! Marshals were supportive and friendly.

Not a bad race but the course was far too narrow in places. The use of the leisure centre was very useful.

I don’t like to leave bad reviews, my mother always told me, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. But this was without doubt the most badly organised running event I’ve ever seen. As many other people have said, the course was entirely unfit for purpose. The medals and t shirts were so cheap and nasty as to be embarrassing. No one seemed to know what was going on on the day or in the lead up to to. No chip timing and as far as I’m aware, results were never published. The organisers seem to host these crappy events all over the country. I honestly can’t believe they are doing this again this year. Don’t bother.

We were able to use the adjoining leisure centre before the race which was great as you could buy a coffee, etc. and go to the toilet. And keep warm! It would have been good to know this in advance. Car parking was only 1.00 for three hours - again it would have been useful to know this.

The course wasn't fit for purpose - too narrow for an out and back course.

The riverside towpaths are too narrow to have people running in different directions several times. The course needs changing so there is less of that. Nearly ended up in the river or the bushes numerous times. Other than that, friendly organisers and nice vibe. I like that its only a few hundred people.
