    This is a great series, and the view of 1000s of runners all in the same tshirt running through the streets of London is amazing, however the route is not the most scenic route via Shoreditch and the majority of the race is through residential streets. Also theres a mismatch in where runners start, so there were a lot of fast runners at the back trying to get through slower runners at the front. All the staff and people are friendly, this is a good race, but not the best 10k.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Good organisation but Very boring course...residential streets and no real landmarks or highlights..
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Had a great time as usual. It was well organised with great atmosphere. Weather was mild so race enjoyable.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Well organised. Easy to get to. Good vibes. Shit streets! Sleeping policeman & full of pot holes! Saw pacers at before the race but not in starting pens but nvm. Clearly marked every KM & when water stations where near
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Incredibly well organised. Everything ran very smoothly and there was no way of getting lost on the course with marshalls and directions on every corner. The free tshirt was great and the medal looks amazing! Atmosphere was the perfect mix of friendly and accessible while feeling like a professional and world-class event

    All the pre-race information was pretty clear and well organised, love the tshirt and the atmosphere at Shoreditch Park despite the morning rain, but that's where it started to go downhill. The route, pitched as a picturesque run through some of Shoreditch and Hoxton's hippest areas, really just loops back and forth through residential areas, with so many hairpins and cutbacks you can't really get too much momentum - not ideal if you're looking for a speedy time, especially as the course bunches a lot at the end. The local support was pretty much non-existent, okay it's not going to be like London, but there really was nobody out there! For £40+ fees, I won't be coming back, as you're not getting any views like on other London runs that make it value for money.

    Been there, done that, got the T-shirt! What a brilliant morning. This was a flat course and well organised. Lots of yummy snacks at the finish too. I would highly recommend this race!

    Great organisation, and the course was nice. Aside from the friendly DJs on De Beauvoir Road and the cheering crowd on Hoxton Street, there wasn’t much of an atmosphere though, which was very disappointing, especially for the price we pay, and after having been instructed we shouldn’t wear earphones nor headphones.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    The Adidas City runs are always great races, really well organised with a great atmosphere and a nice big chunky media waiting for you at the end. The route at Shoreditch is a bit twisty but really flat and makes for a great course.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    A well organised race, great atmosphere and goodies at the end of the race. Really enjoyed it from start to finished. Definitely recommend and will be looking to do it again next year
