    Did the 10k in 2020

    My first Run Through event and one I've wanted to do. Really enjoyed it and would do it again. Well done
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    I'm just such a huge fan of the Olympics and it was a real dream for me to get to run through its hallowed grounds! What an event and what a day!
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Didn't even really think about the fact that we would be running around the stadium for the Oympics but I have to say it was just great fun - it made my day. The organisation was also great, really enjoyed this one
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Nice course and well done by the organiser. Love the way these guys do thing - not overcomplicated and great value
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Loved it all, loved the organisation of the event and the atmos. Not too showy and good value, will be doing again
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Kinda loved it. Really suprised at how efficient these things can be given the amount of people there. Not the best atmosphere but I guess its a smaller race with not many spectators. But very impressed overall!
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    A really well organised event. Super smiley and encouraging race marshalls,and lots of friendly people running. Ive booked my next race here already
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Perfect winter day for a run. A well organised race with a flat, scenic route. Great encouragement from the marshalls and a good goody bag at the end. Lots of friendly competition and run with a nice atmosphere.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Thanks for organising a great 10k event. Its a fast 10k and I only marked it down by one star due to it being 3 Laps. That said, scenery is lovely and its brilliantly organised. We did the mital slide afterwards and paid 2 to shower at the Olympic pool ! Made for an amazing Saturday morning!!
