About this event

East London is at it's best in this recurring race through Victoria Park. The course is pan flat, so it's a great race if you're chasing a PB. Victoria Park is one of London's nicest parks and this is a great way to explore it. Come for the finisher's medal and locally famous homemade flapjacks.

Such an amazing event to be part of. It was well organised, with plenty of toilet facilities, water and electrolyte drinks on the course and more importantly, not too overcrowded when running. The supporters enroute were great, cheering you on, now matter who you were! Would highly recommend the event next year. <br />… read more
