Wimbledon Common is a lovely place to run around although I did struggle a little bit after injury. This was my first 5k back after a knee operation so found it a little tough but the runthrough team were really great and the marshals helped me to push myself around the course. I LOVED the medal, will be checking out what other medals they have for other races. Would definitely recommend

I loved this event. The course was a lot of trail but I though that was great, even saw a Wimbledon Womble on the way round :) The volunteers at the registration were really friendly and it was amazing how quickly my time was online after the race. 10/10

Ran this race in June and it was fantastic. I loved every minute, from the friendly happy marshals on course to the great finish line vibes. Free race photos included as well which was great (who doesn't love a race pic)

Another great Runthrough event. Decent course, plenty of twists and turns and some relatively challenging trail surface mixed in. Great post race snacks too, especially the homemade flapjacks

A great Wednesday evening race. Well organised and good marshalling around the course (the race followed some weird paths and would have been difficult without the marshals, so thank you to them!). Just note that the course can get a bit muddy and feels a bit like a trail run at some points (particularly if it has rained recently).

This was my 5th 10k and it was flat trail so quite fast if you feel like it. The organisers where very friendly and helpful. I have to say doing a race on a Wednesday night was just brilliant and a nice change. I would highly recommend this race.
