A happy medium. One of my favourite events companies, the Race Organiser offer events that are reasonably competitive and flat in nice locations. Although they attract some serious club runners at the front, the masses are made up of people of all abilities, each with their own goals and reasons. Well attended, and well organised I look forward to the winter series. Good medals too.

Good race for summer. Good event. Well organised. Everything ran smoothly and it was my first race so great experience. I would say that the km markers were very confusing but perhaps that’s just me. Thanks!

A well organised and friendly event.... ... especially loved the idea of the organisers booking changing rooms for directly afterwards so you can have a shower. I loved this 10km, open it all abilities and a great course that was flat and tarmaced. There was shade in places and lots to see around the course plus the marshals were truly encouraging. The only thing to think about is as a visitor to London I tried to park on the outer ring road... but you can only park from 9am. Just something that would have been useful to let us know on the website. As I tried to pick up my pack at 8:30 and then had to stay with the car until 9 as the friendly and helpful traffic wardens were having a busy time. :)

Great event. This was only my second 10k but everything was really clear and everyone was friendly. Course was pretty flat too! Worth the money.

Nicely organised (my first run). Nicely organised, easy to find - race is not particularly flat though, I was expecting less height gain. Generally good org, a bit sad that, for £19 pound we didn't get a t-shirt, but all in all I'm happy about the race. It's my first one so I don't really have much to benchmark it against :)

Very well organised, good race overall.. Pre race instructions were good. There were plenty of helpers/medics on hand. A nice selection of post race refreshments/breakfast and the medal for finishing was better than the average too. Can't think of a single negative, even if Regents Park wasn't quite as flat as I had expected!

Flawless. This is the first race of this kind that I have ever done so I don't have anything to which I can compare it directly. What I can say though is that it was brilliantly organised and I very much appreciated the food and drink provided after the run. A thoroughly pleasant way to spend a Sunday morning!

Nice setting, supportive staff. Nice loop in Regent's park - we saw a couple of camels as we passed the zoo :) support staff were really encouraging - nice event.

Really good event. Visiting London and decided to sign up. Really enjoyable event! Easy location to get to (plus advanced email notification was sent regarding potential gate closures due to Trump visiting). There are plenty of maps around the Park and the Hub where the race office was located. Everything was very well organised and the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Decent selection of goodies at the finish (including some very nice flapjack!) and the medal design was very cool. We wouldn't hesitate to sign up for future events in this series if we happen to be in the area.

Fun event in the sun. Really enjoyed my first ever 10k. The staff were very organised and friendly, and lots of encouragement all the way round. The speed with which I received my results and the photos via email was very impressive.

Enjoyable run. Great venue, toilets and a shop. Even a shower room for a charge. Nice run great venue mostly flat. Nice themed medal. Just not a fan of water in plastic cups when running.
