I was denied to drink a cup of water before the race started, in a very impolite and aggressive manner. Apart from that the finishing stewards were excellent and super helpful and friendly. Baggage area staffs were super helpful and polite

An amazing location, with fabulous surroundings; however, despite being flat, there were lots of corners initially and then the long run along the Thames was not really wide enough for two way running traffic, in addition to the dog walkers and cyclists. The tow path was quite uneven underfoot too and would suit a cross-country runner rather than a road racer.

Beautiful scenic run, there was no way near enough toilets provided though, we nearly missed our start time because of the queues. In future there needs to be at least 4x as many portaloos I’d say. That aside it was a great experience!
