Well organized. Arrived and easy to see where to go to get my bib and drop off my bag. Arrived a little early and no wait for porta potties. Organized warm up and announcements for starting based on estimated finish. Volunteers at about 4 key spots on the 3ish mile loop of the park to cheer you on and make sure you didn't eat it turning a slippery corner. Water only in one place, but you run by it 3/4 times in the half marathon, so it's all you need. The course was a combination of road, hard gravel, and mud in December weather, but only a few places where big puddles were inevitable. My phone Strava said it was 13.51 miles, so a little bigger discrepancy than I normally see. Also good to note it was 797 feet of vertical gain, so be ready to be running either up or down hills. Only issue I saw was lack of mileage signs. There is also a 5k and 10k going on, so lots of signs, but I was checking distance and the only sign(s) I saw that even came close to what we could be at was a 2 mile sign, and a 12 mile sign. Best to have GPS on you or you would have no idea how far you have gone or your pacing. Finishing medal and snacks were great.

A very pleasant run. I had never run a 10k before and was on my own so felt a bit nervous about running through a notoriously hilly terrain on a cold January day. However as I made my way over to the event village and saw the buzz and hear the enthusiasm and support from the girl with the microphone I felt at home. The race was so well supported from the sponsors, the group warm up to all the volunteers taking time out to cheer on a group of people going for a park run. The route was brilliant - a mixture of light hills, slopes and flat terrain both on pavement and grass. Periodically throughout the course there were motivational signs from Run Through and hearing the sounds of the guy with the steel drums was encouraging. I really enjoyed the run, even for a novice like me, and as I crossed the finish line and heard my name called out over the tannoy, and later on enjoying a free flapjack, I felt really glad I did this. I wore my medal for the rest of the day!

A great run. The run was so much fun. The team there were really supportive and helpful, with marshals cheering you on at every corner! For my first experience of a race event, I could not have hoped for more.

Crystal Palace half marathon. The course was tough although the weather didn’t help it been the beginning of January 😕. Due to the nature of the course there was varied hills and terrain(grass and pavement) which was challenging but worth while. Great way to start the new year although my legs are hurting now. The course was well run and staff were helpful. I would recommend for anyone looking for a challenge.
