As many race packs will be posted out ahead of the event as possible and event communications will be sent via email in the lead up.

There will not be a formal baggage drop within the event village, please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and leave anything in the car during the race to reduce contact between runners and staff. If this is not possible, please email info@runthrough.co.uk.

There will be multiple hygiene stations around the event with hand sanitiser for all runners.

You will see clear signage around the event village, please follow all signage and instructions from the marshals before, during and after the race.

There will be a manned, and clearly marked, medical hub within the event village.

DURING THE RACE

The race will start in waves based on your estimated finish time, with the faster runners at the start and slower near the back to avoid any congestion and the need to overtake on course.

There will be an informal grab and go water station with sealed sports top bottles on the course, however we ask that you stay hydrated before the event and if you are able to please bring your own. Bottles and camelbacks are permitted.

If you need to overtake on the course please give a wide berth of at least 1 meter around any runners.

6 laps for a 10k : (

I had thought the course could take advantage of the full extent of the park but keeping it to just one small area meant 6 laps required for the 10k.
The volunteers were all really helpful & supportive and I cannot fault the organisation of the event but for me it didn’t have the run event vibe and atmosphere I enjoy. We get more people attend our local parkrun.

Great fun and great run!

1st time runner. Did the 10k. Very well laid out course. Uphills downhills flats and plenty of space to run. Some great pictures. The hype was real...i did not think i could do so well..now im thinking about doing the half marathon!

Great Race for a PB and spectators

The event was very well organised, ALL the staff were really friendly and helpful (all smiling) < IN LONDON!!!!
The route is real tasty with a fair few hills, long bends and a water station at every mile loop which is really handy!! This is ideal for a PB and ideal for spectators as they can see you multiple times during one mile loop!! Multiple clean changing rooms with showers.Nice medal as well. This course is a must.

A great 10 mile race

I signed up for 10 miler as I was struggling to find events between 10k and a HM (although this event has those distances too :)). I would recommend the race - organisation was really good, friendly vibe, good looping course, accurate time chips. Overall I was very happy and managed a pb. Two little things I would suggest to be improved - 1) the water stations generated an obscene number of plastic bottles - could a reusable option be considered? 2) the flapjack at the end contained dairy so I couldn’t have it because I’m vegan.
