Did the Half Marathon 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 Half Marathon 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

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!
