London's Victoria Park is beautiful where all races start. The half and full start at the same time and follow the same first half. Fulls run through Victoria Park to the thunderous cheers before heading out into the second half (different route) through Springbank Park. The pasta dinner the night before in London is nice as is the post race atmosphere. I mean really nice, one of the nicest I have ever been too. (Massey is great). Victoria Park is so neat. The entire atmosphere is excellent. I could go on and on. London does a fantastic job. Puts a smile on your face. Excellent for the family too. All kinds of races. Did I say Victoria Park is a beautiful venue, close to downtown too. Post race party in the park is excellent!
London is not a difficult course. There is good spectator support and water / aid stations. Last year I was offered a popsicle en route.
