Loved the course, marshal's really friendly.. only criticism is the time it took to individually cut our chip tags off.. we all got cold waiting. Saying that I did love the event, would def do it again ☺️

Yet another event promising a goody bag that didn't happen as they ran out. They know how many runners, but fail on their promises.

All great
Did the race in 2022
Great start/finish organisation & fab volunteers. Fast and flat course that goes right past Hampton Court Palace. Tons of free photos sent to all participants, with a great medal and a goody bag. No finisher shirts offered this year (they were in 2020).Course is either on river pathways or open roads which can make for a congested pavement with runners and pedestrians both needing space and cars driving past. Would be much better if the roads could be closed.
Did the race in 2022
Terrible experience on the course; way too many cars, bikes and pedestrians- nearly got run down by bikes several times and was forced onto roads with active car users because of pedestrians taking up the pavement. Wind was extremely detrimental, I saw 5 runners give up before reaching 5K and many other more experienced runners comment on how difficult the course was. Considering a day or two before people were being advised to stay indoors because of how dangerous it was outside, this race really should have been postponed
Did the race in 2022
Fantastic volunteers from the start. Well organised already paying and knowing where to park straight away. Brilliant atmosphere great pacers and a fantastic event. Will definitely run again
Did the race in 2022
Great event and well organised. The course is perfect for beginners, although the wind really made it a lot tougher than expected! This was my first half marathon and I was blown away by the support, especially towards the end and when crossing the finishing line. Huge thanks to all of the volunteers!
