Refreshments: There will be water provided on each lap of the race, as well as at the finish alongside bananas and of course flapjacks!

Enjoyable Well Organised Event. Ran the Hyde Park 10k yesterday. Very well organised and appreciative of the 20ps for the toilets and support around the course. Looking forward to the next race in preparation for the marathon in April.

Not the best run though event. I have done lots of races with run through and I generally love them but this one was not the greatest. Not the best route and it felt a bit subdued

A well organised race. It was very calm, organised and such fun. The route (5k - 2 laps) was relatively easy with a good stretch of downhill. The Marshalls were enthusiastic and encouraging. The medal we get was great quality. All in all, a great first 5k!

Well organised fun race. Communication was good and easy to locate the start. Quick and easy to get number and bag storage available. Well marshalled course which was 4 laps round a segment of Hyde park for 10k which I enjoyed. Medal, energy drink and kind bar at the end was a nice touch along with our time. Would do again and try other locations :)

Great event. Well organized and friendly staff. I had a hiccup with my entry and the team were super helpful and responsive. The day of the event was fun and ran smoothly (excuse the pun!). Loved it and would be more likely to choose another race run by runthrough over another organizer.
