In short: Rip off, dangerous, with rude organisers In full: Complete rip off - you are basically paying £12 for a piece of paper and half cup of water. Staff we obnoxious from the start - the woman literally snatched the money out of my hand. They expect runners to be happy leaving their valubles in a room where anyone could wander in and help themselves, in the middle of Regents Park! Spent most of the race worrying about my belongings. The race description is a LIE - there is no medal, no voucher, no food etc at the end. Bunch of jokers. AVOID! Date of review: January 9, 2012
In short: Cheap, simple race In full: A well organised simple race around 3 laps of Regent's Park. A pretty flat course meas PB potential is high. A good mix of runners means the race thins out quickly.
I would like to thank the organisers. I ran to the race and got a little lost so arrived with less than 10 minutes to go. I had to pick up my race number and they were very helpful. Cheers. Date of review: January 8, 2012
In short: Very easy simple and enjoyable race course. In full: This is a good course. Flat, simple, wide roads, no hills and good water stations. Friendly, easy to get to and nice stewards. I enjoyed it.
Not challenging which is a nice change but all will enjoy it. Good variety of runners.
Sadly no goody bags or medals, just water & bananas at the end, but it's cheap so who cares?
A good fun race well managed. Date of review: December 5, 2011
In short: An excellent, well-organsied race and the series is good for measuring training progress In full: However, as with many races, the organisers could usefully a) use a powerful megaphone seeings as folk refuse to shut up and listen to race instructions; b)tell racers to put themselves in the right place at the start (why do slower starters insist on placing themselves right on the line and slowing everything up at the start?); and c) perhaps have more signage to encourage park users to show a little consideration when crossing through the race.

In short: A wonderful 10k series to use as training races in particular In full: I've done four 10K's so far with Mornington Chasers - everyone's very friendly, especially the race organizer Maurice who has always been very understanding if I've had to reschedule to another month due to illness or another conflict. Low-pressure atmosphere but serious enough to have a strong, focused run and hopefully hit a PB! They're great races to use as training runs leading up to a larger event, or simply to track your progress. I'll be doing the one in early March.

In short: Great 10k organised by runners In full: It was great to run a 10km which was accurately measured on an excellent course in my favourite park organised by runners.... Date of review: December 9, 2010
In short: 3-laps, not quite flat In full: Enjoyed this. Nice people and good banter. bananas at the end. Chip timing not great as it records gun time, not cross-the-start-line-time. Nonetheless shaved 15sec off my PB. Would def do again and would recommend to others. I'll be back... Date of review: December 6, 2010
