Great day. Thanks to everyone who organised a great day at Finsbury Park Especially keeping the rain at bay and letting the sunshine! Great day, well organised, well marshalled and a Fair but demanding course Looking forward to coming back again Thanks

I enjoyed the experiance. The weather started off far from ideal. So the ground around the registration desk was muddy and the wind was intense. However, there was still a great atmosphere. The staff/team were friendly and helpful. The event ended up being a beautiful (but windy) morning. The timing chip worked for me, but I did see that there was a number of people that didn't get a time recorded. In all I enjoyed the morning. Thank you to the RunThrough team.

My first race. Having never done a race like this before I thoroughly myself. Despite the wind and muddy weather the route was clearly marked out and the stewards were very enthusiastic and helpful. I would definitely do this race again. Thanks very much

Dissapointed. The run it’s self is fine but up and down. The organisation of the event not so good. Set up all the tables on a muddy field for some reason deprive being plenty of pathways to use which would have been better by a long way. Was covered in mud! The chip running was also poor. Around 70 people didn’t register on finishing, myself included so no chip time. One of the main reasons I do these runs is to see if times improve.
