Great atmosphere, organised event
Played chariots of fire and London Marathon theme music at the start of the race which was fun and got you in the mood! pleasant and varied scenic route along the river and the woods. No loops in the course which made it more enjoyable.
Thanks for the feedback - the T-shirts are being posted out to you. Sorry theye were not available on the day. Also the course distance is correct as we have had it measured with loads of devices and is run for many years now. Thanks again
