Did the 10k in 2021
It was a great event, and I loved the location. The snacks at the end were great and I loved all the photos of the event (bought mine, of course!). However, the park (Crystal Palace) is big, and there was another event on the same day, I struggled to find the location of this event... Signals would be much appreciated, also, mention exactly where the event starts ''close to the kid's playground'' for instance. The GPS took me to the middle of nowhere in the park, which was a bit of a pain. Out of that, brilliant. Thank you all

Did the Half Marathon in 2021
There were only 50 people in my race and I loved it. Sometimes the crowds are off-putting and just a little bit too much. This was just the racers, a few volunteers, and amazing scenery. I loved connecting with people there. It felt more intimate with a greater focus on the people rather than the event.
