Everything went as planned, the course was easy, avoiding the step places, and a very smooth experience overall, just wish I was faster ;-)

Easy to get to, plenty of parking, Need to be aware of all other park users as it is busy. Queue early for the toilets.

Great course. Good marshalling. But despite having registered and paid, when I turned up there was no record of my having entered the race. Also it was hard to hear the pre-race brief from the back.

Well organised race and nice atmosphere! The course was OK - it could have been a bit more varied to be more interesting but still a good course.

I am only reviewing negatively as I am tying to get in touch with the organisers through the link in my acceptance email (have been for two weeks) but cant get hold of anyone. Hoping a negative review may prompt a response!

This is a great race, it's not huge so don't expect any crowds or people cheering you on. But, it's a perfect training race. It's well organised and Richmond Park is so beautiful, you feel like you're in the countryside.
