Did the race in 2022
Well run event. Always enjoyed running at Battersea Park
Did the race in 2022
I’m not sure if it’s possible but would have been nice to have been around more of the park instead of running the same boring lap 4 times.
Did the race in 2022
Very well organised and friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere
Did the race in 2022
The race is several laps of the course - that’s fine if you don’t mind lots of laps - but the problem is the “elite” runners and 5k participants aren’t clearly marked in terms of where they should run. I was constantly getting brushed past or having people push me as they ran between me and the people around me. It’s not an enjoyable course with that many laps to constantly feel like you’re in the way (and I wasn’t running hugely slowly). The organisers need to do a better job of signposting where people can run and give some guidance before it starts that people should give other runners space.

Great run really we’ll organises and we’ll supported.
