In short: Delayed start, but still an enjoyable race. In full: After running this year (2015), the organisation was one of the best about the event. However in 2016, the event has grown to quite a large scale, and the organisation let it down. Baggage wasn't clearly labelled... And the delayed 30 mins start was infuriating. That said, it was a lovely race, plenty of lovely scenery. Great for beginners, or for someone trying to get a PB. Date of review: February 21, 2016
In short: Nice in places In full: Think the weather today had a major impact on the day. Scenery was a bit bland, and it wasn't as flat as described. Lack of marshall (again, blame the weather). Spectators were really good. Last mile and half, seem to go on forever!!! Date of review: March 17, 2013
In short: Great race for beginners. Over subscribed / not well marshalled In full: Royal Parks 2012.... Done this run since 2009 and ech year the events get bigger and harder to get into. Brilliant scenery and PB potential is there. Atmospere is brilliant, exactly like the London Marathon. Downside - far too many people. Pens for runner are not controlled.. was speaking in the 1:45hr group, hoping to finish in 2.30.. Marshalling is poor on course.. spectators trying to play dodgems with runners... And it feels that the Royal Prks have sold the majority of the places to the charities - far too corporate, and not about the runners!!!!! Finally baggage area, still too far away from finish line!!!
