In short: My third time in a row. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended. In full: My only criticism was the slightly confusing finishing line. I wasn't the only runner who saw the first timimg ramp and slowed down immediately, assuming it was the finishing point. There were, I think, three finishing ramps to run over. The second one (and real finishing point) was in line with the balloons and the finishing sign. It's a minor-ish point but I don't recall this confusion last year and there were a lot of runners who also thought they'd finished when they hadn't quite. Otherwise an absolutely brilliant race, my third in a row and I can't wait to do it again next year. Huge thanks to all the organisers and volunteers. Date of review: September 15, 2012
In short: Excellent, recommended. In full: I've done a number of different 10Ks in London and this is my favourite so far. Professionally-organised but not in-your-face and still friendly. Big enough but not too big (about 1000 runners). I'm not a fan of multi-lap courses but this is OK. Also good to see it supports local running clubs (you use their clubhouse) and charities. It definitely has PB potential. Date of review: August 30, 2011
In short: Loved it! Great atmosphere, gorgeous scenery and excellent PB potential In full: My first Pride 10k - had read good things about it and they are all true. Very well organised, particularly liked the cream cheese bagels at the end. The marshalls were excellent, really encouraging and friendly. Plenty of people lining the route cheering you on. Great goody bag - loving the towel. And to top it all I beat my PB by a whole minute. Definitely on my race calendar for next year and probably the happiest 10k I have done so far. Thanks to all the organisers :o) Date of review: August 25, 2011
In short: Nicely organised & a definate PB race In full: Three laps of Victoria Park, perfect for a PB hunter. I'd hoped for a 53 min, somehow got a 51:46. Mrs also enjoyed her first 10k.
Atmosphere was good at the end of every lap where the majority of support was. Could have done with some toilets near the start line as this was 600m from the finish area. Also would have been good to have the water station on both sides of the path to spread out runners.
Excellent course though & a nice towel to boot! Date of review: August 24, 2011
