Just cos an event doesn't appear on RW doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it.
Looks like the 'original' was first run this year (2014), costs £27/£29 of which 5% goes to charity and is a mix of road/towpath. Race director is a club runner with experience as race director in several other established running events which, to me, suggests he knows what he's doing.
The 'official' one is a brand new event, costs £31/£33 and is almost entirely towpath/off road within the Palace estate. Little info about race organisers on the website. No possible way of knowing how good or bad this event may be.
