From the organizer

Organizer's website

This is a great event or those looking to start their warm weather season with a flat and fast half, or even those looking for extra spring training for a summer marathon. After 5 quick laps on tarmac and hard gravel, competitors can expect a goody bag packed full of treats on finishing. We recommend the event to more confident runners, as there is a firm 2 hour cut off for all runnners.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Well-organised and with enough runners that you always felt part of a big event. It is just 5 or so laps of the park which some people might find a bit boring but I found really helpful in terms of pacing myself. Very wet day but that didn't dampen the support at the finish line. Great half to do with friends as easy to get a place and really central!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Great flat (mostly) race, good organisation, would do it again! The race is fairly low key, not too many spectators. Regents Park is a nice setting.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Very good course, very helpful staff and Marshall's. Excellent refereshments at the end of the race. Friendly runners. All round great experience.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      If you are looking for a crowd to cheer you on and get you through the wall, then forget this race...it's not for you. I did find a group of runners around the same pace as me and we all sort of clubbed together to set pace and push each other on - it's that type of event - a run for runners. Course is great and I don't actually mind the loops - 4 would have been ideal, though 5 is not too much of a stretch. Only two longish uphill slops, but they are set-off by the following flow down-hill all making for a great course to set a PB, which I managed to pull. All in all, well organised, started on time, sufficient water stops and a cracking overall feel to this event!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      I had a great run today and got my pb! A great course to do a pb and lovely staff and Marshalls. A really beautiful medal too . Only thing I would say is a few posters up outside Regents Park entrance for arrows to registration and start as we were circling for a while in the taxi this morning.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

      This was a great prep race of the London marathon - fast and flat. Laps isn't the most exciting, but it helps with pacing and it meant there were always others to push off along the course. It was quite low key but that suited me. Definitely good value and I appreciated the flapjack at the end!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

      This is definitely a race organised by runners, the field is pretty small so don't expect any fanfare or cheering crowds. It does exactly what it says on the tin, great value for money and lots of nice people. The route is just laps of the park so great for pacing yourself and getting a PB, but pretty monotonous (apart from spotting the occasional giraffe in the zoo which is amazing!) Great training race for London Marathon, would recommend.
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Really solid local race and excellent value for money. I was supporting someone trying to run their PB and the laps are great if you're going for a time as great for pacing. It's not a big atmosphere big participation race but excellent as a quick friendly half marathon. Quick tip is that there are more loos around the other side of the island - don't just queue with everyone else!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      For me, 5 laps of the same course isn't very good. I'm not sure I would do a half marathon that is laps again. The event lacked any sense of occasion which was a bit of a shame. It is also bad that we were told only having entered that there would be a cut off of 2 hours. For slower runners, that will have been an unwelcome surprise... However, the staff working there and the markers on the course were friendly and kind.

      Is it strictly 2 hours. I've taken time off training and will probably do it in 2.10

      Hi there, unfortunately there are restrictions on the park which mean that the strict 2 hours time limit has to be adherred to - the organiser will be taking down the finish area after 2 hours.

      Hi. I’m hoping to finish in 1hr 55 . What happens if for example I finished at 2hrs 1 minute? Would I still recieve a medal? Thanks for your help
