In short: One I always look out for every year! In full: This was my second Mo Run and my friend and I always do a little challenge to raise momey for charity. In 2013 it was who would win, the 2014 race was try to get my friend under the 50 minute mark and I'd act as his pacer.
The organisation is top notch, the atmosphere is electric, the MC is brilliant and encouraging to all runners and the course is set in the scenice Greenwich Park.
A really tough race with plenty of hills but it really does fly by and it is such fun. Although the weather wasn't particularly warm, there were plenty of people there braving the cold, cheering everyone along and there was a real buzz from all the other runners. Well organised start so that the faster people were at the front and all the others who came for the fun run side of it too seemed to be having a great time with the Group Warm up too.
My friend got round in just over 50 minutes which although wasn't the target was a massive PB for him and he was over the moon.
One good thing about this race is there is plenty to do in the area afterwards so it's not a case of "Here's your medal and cheerio!" Belgian beer always goes down nicely after this race we've found...
I will continue to do this race as often as I can and a great run for a great charity. Date of review: July 13, 2015
In short: Great Race If 1500 people going to run a 10k on a cold morning in November In full: Been running since 1989 and don't say this about many races but this is a great race, friendly organisers & marshalling (to pick out a few marshalls the dancing lady and the American gentleman) and support (especially the hill at 4k/9k).
Even though support small they still brought the spirit of the London Marathon to the race.
Great for first timers and fun runners and friendly atmosphere for any type of runner.
Headband you are given a start of race, great fun warm up, unique medal at end and race for a good cause (Prostrate Cancer.
2 lap course a couple of hills but at least you know what to expect second time around. The crowd on the last hill towards finish amazing and get you up that hill
