REVIEWS

Really enjoyed the race

I really enjoyed the event on Saturday. It was well organised and the route was fun. I'm a West Ham fan so it's great to be on home turf.

The only reason why this isn't a 5 star is due to the technical difficulties a couple of my friends had (6 of us raced) with their times. But I understand that you've been working to resolve that with them.

Well Organised

This was my first formal event. I found it easy to register and collect chip. It was really encouraging with the Marshalls clapping us on.Pleasantly surprised by goodies at end of a 10k and really liked the medal. I will sign up again :)

Well Organised

A great location around the Olympic Park, a 3 lap course. Encouraging staff along the route, water and goodies at the end and a nice medal. Only slight negative is a lack of course markings denoting which KM you’re on, but negligible if you have a watch.

Well organised and fun!

Would definitely do again!

Well organised but missing the race T-shirt

It's a lapped race but with a nice circuit. Collecting the race numbers was easy and well organized. I found marshals encouraging throughout the run. "Goodies" at the end of the race were nice. I have participated in various runs across Europe (cheaper in price...) and is the first time I didn't get a T-shirt...which is a shame and the only big negative on this run!

Good, mainly flat lapped race

I enjoyed this, It's a good venue on a Sunday with not too many people around (3 teenagers smoking dope though - gak!) It was well organised, started on time, got results out quickly. Not very crowded. Mainly flat apart from a few slopes on the way up onto bridges. It's a shame it was lapped, but in a park that size, I guess it's to be expected and I guess also saves on costs (and therefore price).

Would do it again - but

My partner and I enjoyed this run despite it being a lapped run. It wasn’t too busy, collecting race numbers was easy and bag drop was well organised. The marshalls were very encouraging to all abilities and the end of race ‘goodies’ were lovely. Only negative I have is no one was giving out the T-shirt’s which meant my partner and I ended up not getting one.

Stephanie Mcintosh / Apr 07, 2019

Hi Stephanie, thanks for the feedback on the event. We just wanted to clarify that we do not give out t-shirts at the event for all finishers. The t-shirts are only available to purchase online before the event and people pick them up on the day.

Would run it again but...

Good run considering it was laps, but once finished no one was giving out the t shirts we had won for taking part which led to me and my running partner not getting one

Perfect

An great event!!! So much so that I will be doing it again. Encouragement from team and participants made it a memorable experience for those of all abilities. Don't put your abilities from taking a chance!

Gina Gollo / Apr 07, 2019

Great fun

Very well organised, it was very efficient and easy to pick up your number and bag drop off. Good flat course. Great toilet facilities in the coffee house. Nice medal at the end. Also quick results posted.

Hayley Finch / Apr 07, 2019

Excellent!

Well organised, super route taking in some of London’s most iconic attractions and Marshall’s were great all the way around encouraging the competitors. Can’t fault it! Great race!

David Conn / Apr 07, 2019

Difficult in terms of terrain

I personally found the race enjoyable and not too difficult in terms of terrain. A few gentle inclines and declines made the course relatively quick and as a result a ran a relatively fast 10k. The course was well organised with marshals in suitable places to direct. Three loops to the course made it easy to anticipate what was coming later on and how much effort to put in, however any more than three risks the race becoming a little boring. Over all I would score this race 4 out of 5.

Chris Mumford / Nov 29, 2018

Plenty of marshalls

I'd give the race at Queen Elizabeth park 4.5. The race itself was well organised and facilities good (though the Loos at the restaurant were closed before everyone had finished). There were plenty of marshalls and people to answer questions and give directions for bag storage etc. I struggled to find my wfrim the station to the park though. Someone or signs would have helped.

Claire Haynes / Nov 29, 2018

loved the race

I loved the race! Though it was hard though as it was so hot. I enjoyed the group warm up, the beautiful olympic park course itself, the friendly lady handing out our medals at the end and the prompt email with my time and pics from the day for only 3.

Gemma Stafford / Nov 29, 2018

Stands out as one of the best

I've attended a few different running events now and the summer 19k series really stands out as one of the best. Really enthusiastic volunteers, very well organised and a decent flat course for those important PB's. Not to mention a great venue.

Jonathan Crisford / Nov 29, 2018

Nice location

I really enjoyed the 10k as it was a nice location and beautiful weather. I will keep monitoring your website and see if I can find some more nice runs to participate.
