This is a small race hosted by Staines Strollers and Runnymede Runners.
Ok, let’s be honest. It’s an open road 10k around the suburbs of Staines so it’s not the most beautiful. However if you’re looking for a good, well organised, flat and fast race you can’t go too far wrong for the price. There are a couple of pinch points although I personally wasn’t affected by them.
There was good local support for an event of this size. One family were running their own unofficial water stop which was a lovely touch (and really helped me) and plenty of friend and family support at the finish line.
1 water stop at 5.5k is fine. Water stop at finish line had tiny cups but they were ready to refill multiple times so not too bad.
Medal and t-shirt as momentos which for the price is good. Overall a fun race for a Sunday morning in May.
