I really like the RunThrough events that I have run. this was my 4th run and they have all been well organised with enthusiastic marshals, sufficient water during the race, nice medals and plenty of good snacks at the finish

Good event hot weather. Despite the heat the run was quite good. I liked the warm up trainers a lot. There were refreshments and snacks after finishing the run. There was even security to leave bags. (I wish I knew this ) The only thing I didn't like is the running path. For 10K there were 4 lapses and this is quite disencouraging. Usually for 10K races there are 2 lapses so when I finish a lapse, knowing there are more lapses made me feel weaker. Besides passing the same path 4 times is not so exciting as well. I would like to run in other parts of the Hyde Park.

Well organized event. I liked the way everything about this event was informal but efficiently organised. Registration was easy, bags were stored within the enclosure, the course was well laid out, and it was nice to come back to the goal which looked quite professional. There was also an ample supply of water and snacks after the event. The flow of information was also very smooth though I haven't found the photographs yet. I recommend the event to anyone interested in jogging in the semi-competitive atmosphere.

Fun and well organised event. I ran the 10k Hyde park run last week, and was impressed with how organised it was. Picked up my running pack within a few minutes, dropped my bag off and it was nice that there were companies there offering tasters of their products, mainly drinks. I am also pleased to hear of new products and sometimes water doesn’t cut it before a run. The run was a little hard, mainly watching people sitting In the sun, but the organisers cheered us on and got us through. Lots of water on offer, and the flapjack provides at the end of was totally needed :) It was great to hear our names when we ran through the finishing line too. Gives you a sense of achievement. I would definitely do this run again.
