Great race. The event was well organised, plenty of Marshall's and signage in the course. The course itself was scenic and a beautiful day for running. The medal t-shirt and snacks always help at the end as well.

Simply Beautiful (but muddy). Such a beautiful course with mixed terrains and hills. I really enjoyed the 4 laps as it broke down the 13.1 miles nicely! The organisers were great and the support from the marshals was amazing - would definitely do the course again (maybe in the summer to avoid the mud slides at the end!)

Beautiful course. You will be running past herds of wild deer, see distant views of London. The terrain is paths, roads and in the summer, dust paths (Not bad) Being a park this is open to the public. There is carparking on site.

Scenic beauty and beastly hills. What a beautiful park! I was promised a deer sighting but had to make do with luscious green and leafy surroundings that would make any visitor appreciate how good our parks are in the London. As for the run itself, standard fare for RunThrough Events. Very well organised and seamless production. The four laps is a good way to do it as it mentally splits the run into managable quadrants. If it wasn’t for the big incline it would be my favourite race for sure. But hey, it’s great for fitness!!

Good Race and well Organised. A well structured and organised event. All the support staff were amazing from arrival, bib collection and throughout the race on the course marshals were very supportive! only down side is the amount of plastic waste from water bottles, but for a small race series this is a problem for most races.
