In short: Third time running this event - won't be the last In full: I love this race! Regents Park is the loveliest of the royal parks (imo), and the course was flat, well-signed and staffed by friendly encouraging marshals. I ran past a water station (twice, as it was on a lap) and the finish had a big clock. Great value and a not-too antisocial start time (I don't live in London) mean I'll try to get here again next year. Date of review: November 19, 2014
In short: Great race, really enjoyable atmosphere and great organisation In full: It was a glorious Sunday morning with blue sky but the Autumn chill in the air. Organization of collecting chips and race number seemed seamless with friendly volunteers. Course was 3 laps being well marked, good water stations and good marshals. Great goody bag with recovery drink. Wonderful running in such a central London park. Definitely will do next year. Date of review: November 20, 2012
In short: Great scenary, great organisation and a good PB course. In full: 3 lap race taking place in the glorious setting of Regents Park. Race was well organised with plenty marshals and clear KM markers. Paths were relatively narrow but given the number of competitors, there was plenty room for overtaking. Couple of tight corners which were a bit tricky given the slippery conditions. Knocked a couple of minutes off my PB given the flat nature of the course. Also measured exactly 10km on my Garmin afterwards which is a first! Good goody bag at the end including recovery drink and After Adoption t-shirt. Definitely would do this again.
One suggestion for race organisers Nice Work - There is a sharp corner both into and out of the start and finish funnel and a couple of runners lost their footing there. Worth repositioning for next year. Date of review: November 20, 2012
In short: Great run In full: I really enjoyed this run. I wasn't sure about the 3 laps but actually it meant that the course was really flat and non complicated which allowed me to get a PB for the first time in ages! It also meant tgat you could see more runners which, together with the cheering marshals, really gave this a friendly team feel. Looking forward to next year. Date of review: December 14, 2011
In short: well-organised race, flat, good for a PB In full: As a vet with bad nakles & a cold I was a bit doubtful abpout turning up, but this was a well-organised race, with friendly marshals & a nice flat course. I feared I might find 3 laps boring, but it didn't feel like that. I got my best 10K time since June 2010 & got a nice goody bag as well Date of review: November 21, 2011
In short: Fast and flat In full: Really enjoyed this race. The course was fast and flat with definate PB potential (I took 10 secs off mine.) Marshalls were pretty good, some better than others but mostly encouraging and friendly. Nearly got taken out by a dog on the 1st lap and had to hurdle it, the owner was oblivious but not a problem. Nice goody bag at the end. Will be back next year. Date of review: November 21, 2011
In short: Well organised, decent sized run with potential for speed In full: Well organised run. Was initially dubious of the 3 lap route but it was good - easy enough to go fast with one slightly challenging long slow hill towards the end. Very decent goody bag at the end as well. Will sign up for 2012. Date of review: November 20, 2011
