Water cups are really hard to drink out of when running, made me cough a lot. Mini water bottles are much better!

Shame about the mix up with numbers. Think it might have been slightly over half distance too.

A fun and well-run event.

Any other notes?

Maybe specify not the best race for beginners as some pretty tough hills! Course measured long on my Garmin at 21.51km - appreciate hard to measure distance accurately as there are various ways to run the trail. Further comment - position of mile 5 marker off by 400m (early) - one to watch out for.

Good atmosphere, friendly organisation and well-run. I'll definitely be back!

Very good race, great to have such a hilly course in London

Any other notes?

I would advise using paper cups rather than plastic and have bins after each water station (c 100m)

Any other notes?

I really enjoyed todays event. There were a couple of points on the course where more marshals would have been helpful. I would be surprised if there weren't any runners who made a slight detour!

A good event, but rather small.

The miles markers were not accurate, and even by sticking to the route throughout, I ran 13.44 miles.
The organisers were lovely and the support was great.

Bit hilly, bit breezy but beautiful views!

Any other notes?

Some of the marshalls had got bored by the time the last runners went past, so weren't really on the ball with manning drinks stations, etc. I know the weather was terrible and, as a volunteer marshall myself, I know it can be a bit dull and you get cold, but it would have been nice to have had a bit more engagement towards the end of the course.
