Well organised, really relaxed atmosphere, a bit like a Park Run event. All of the event staff were super friendly and helpful. Suitable for more and less experienced runners. Great support from the Marshalls on the way round the course. Nice medal and tasty snacks at the end. Really enjoyed it.

Lot’s of fun. Event was perfectly organized! It was a nice experience running 4 laps! It was great trying to chase other runners and trying to not get overlapped by faster runners!

A lovely run. The Olympic Park is a beautiful place to run, although doing a 10k gets a bit repetitive as you do four loops of the course. The event was extremely well-organised. The staff were super helpful and supportive throughout the race, despite the rainy weather. I really enjoyed it - would definitely do it again!
