Yes I enjoyed this run - as ever the organizers were great and I liked the tambourines that the marshals had around the course. People were very kind and encouraging which makes it feel like a welcoming environment for people of all abilities.

It was very hot [not a controllable factor]I’m not the biggest fan of laps. But the course itself was ok. Great energy from the Marshalls and very helpful organisers. I would recommend.

Did the race in 2022
Quite a few 5k runners were included in the 10k times so although I was first over the line (my first time ever!), it doesn’t show in the results. Perhaps a problem with the lap course though appreciate there’s no other option at Clapham Common.

I was a bit nervous arriving but everyone was very helpful & friendly. The course was easy to follow with volunteers helpfully spaced out.

Will there be bike parking available/can I leave my bike locked up by the bag store where it's presumably surrounded by marshals rather than locked up on a street where it'll probably be stolen :)

Hey Tom. I don't know if you can definitely leave your bike at the bag drop but I imagine the marshalls would be ok with it. Maybe best to take a lock just in case and lock it somewhere with plenty of people around
