Very well organised and a really good race if you are looking for a PB or coming along to join in the fun and keep your fitness going. Just go for it.

Great location but confusing course layout (the water station also pulls you to the wrong side) Ran out of medals towards the end

·2 years ago

well organised, could have organised one more water station as it was quite hot weather. unfortunately, by the time I finished all the jubilee medals had gone and was promised one would be sent to those who didn't get it.

Was a my first run I really enjoyed the atmosphere

Small, well organised race in an amazing place. Not flat though - I clocked 72 metres of ascent, with a short tough one at the end of each lap.

Great course for a PB, pretty flat and laps so feels like a short course. Staff are super organised and highly recommend to anyone

·2 years ago

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.

Great return to racing. My first run since lockdown. Super well organised. Felt very safe. Staggered starts were a bonus - was nice to have so much space. Great venue. Would highly recommend.

Energised simple fun. Was a fun course in a beautiful part of London but a short lap IMO. All staff motivational and positive which was nice, medal and snacks after. Not sure I would do this race again but fun to do!

expensive for what's provided. They try to save as much money as possible and you can see it.

Enjoyable and well organised. Thoroughly enjoyable event from start to finish. Everyone is friendly, and very supportive cheerers through the laps. A little pricey, but I’d definitely do it again.

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!

·5 years ago

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!

Brilliant event. Absolutely brilliant day even in the rain!!!

5/5 and definitely participate again. I really enjoyed the race and the event itself. I'd give it a 5/5 and definitely participate again!
