Organiser's Description

Kick off the festive period and join us at the wonderful Battersea Park for a 5k or 10k run!

Battersea Park is one of London’s most picturesque parks and has been a favourite course for those wanting to run a PB! The course is totally flat, offering the perfect opportunity to push yourself to a personal best. Starting and finishing at the Bandstand, this course laps the Park, making it easy to follow and great for any spectators to catch you flying round the course.

Well organised. My 2nd 10k race, really well organised before and after the race, course was good, well marshalled

Well Organised Event. A very good race, very flat and easy to pace as it is 4 identical loops. Sometimes needed to weave around slower runners due to the race being laps - however there was plenty of space and never really effected the speed at which I was able to run.

Good race for a PB. Great flat course making for a fast run. Well organised event with the bonuses of great freebies at the end and free race photos.

10/10. This was my first proper race and it was a great introduction - the staff were organised, kind, efficient and friendly and I honestly can't think of one thing I'd improve on. The course was nice and flat, and everything was set up well so it was easy to follow. I strongly recommend!

Great event. Fantastic course, lovely and flat! And the people cheering you on in the high-vis were great!

A perfect flat course. This was only my third 10km race, and I was delighted to manage a significant improvement on my previous times! This was hugely helped by the totally flat route. I enjoyed the 'lap style' route, as ticking off each lap made the end seem tangibly closer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The course was well marked. The medal was excellent! Highly recommended!

Well organised and nice route. Live close by so the route is familiar, but it was really well organised, marked, and stewarded. Recommended.

Great race. I chose this one to improve my PB - which I’ve done. Great organisation. I really like them because they care. From the start to the finish, everything was spot on and pictures being free is a big plus. Thank you!

Friendly, well organised run. Great flat run with lots of friendly people involved. My first time running a 4 x lap course & that was a bit boring to be honest but it was a fun event to be part of

Battersea Park 10k. I couldnt have wanted a better experience for my first 10K! Communication was excellent from booking right until race team. The organisation and effort which was made by the whole RunthroughUK team made all the difference. Thankyou for a very memeorable time, Audrey
