This was my second half marathon and I loved it! Everyone was super friendly, it didn’t feel too busy and the course was beautiful. The only thing that could be slightly improved was the lapping system - it got a bit confusing and the signage was sometimes a bit hard to interpret. But otherwise an amazing day! Thanks so much, will definitely be back

Battersea park Half is your typical Run Through London park half marathon, with lots of laps, 9 to be precise! Not my favourite half marathons but this one is really flat and all in tarmac so it was actually quite ok. Very well organised as usual.. I say the same thing every time for Run Through staff & marshals, they are the best! The medal is also your typical Run Through a London park medal, cute. I would join a Run Through half any time just to get that flapjack at the end ;) And you get all photos for free, thank you for that!!
