A smaller enjoyable event
Nice and flat with PB potential
Half a k Short.
Very stress free
Route a little dodgy...
Though Wandsworth Park is great for views, it's on the smaller side so a 10km run didn't work. The route was a both a squeeze around the public and very repetitive after 5 loops. It also finished up at 9.4km, which for me was enough (!!), but perhaps not ideal for those trying to run a PB.
The hosts were lovely, but the lack of any "sound" (music / start buzzer) made for a bit of an anti-climax. For that reason it felt more like a running club than an "event".
Despite that, I will run with them again as it sounds as though they might have a bigger budget / more prospects for future races.
