Did the Half Marathon in 2021
Course was incredibly loopy with many u-turns which inevitably slow you down. Atmosphere was minimised because of Covid and spectators being discouraged but the volunteers were great.

Great experience and would recommend, the location was ideal too. The route was challenging but not unmanageable

The atmosphere is great and most of the course is great to run; except the last 2 miles were the hardest as there were 3 hills in a row, which was quite challenging and may be hard for beginners.

Was a little bit worried about the course before hand but it was actually a very good course with great views of the Olympic Park. I got a PB too :)

The event was well organised - it was a shame about the poor weather on the day of the event, but I felt the team still handled things very well.It was also a shame that there was only one member of staff at the information tent - this did cause some congestion.Enjoyed the course and the staff manning all of the various points were brilliant!

Quite windy on the day , tight undulating course not one for a pb , but good to see all the sights of the Olympic park , well organised , good day out would recommend as a spring marathon training run for the seasoned athlete or a first timer half as interesting course with lots of Marshalls on course ,

A very nice route around the park, with a good amount of participants and great organisation by RunThrough. I would recommend this half marathon if you are looking a PB as it is mostly downhll it seems!

Really enjoyed this race. Was worried about the course beforehand having seen the route but really didnt need to worry. It worked really well and I enjoyed the fact you saw so many people and couldnt ever see miles ahead. The 1hr30 pacer was great. Only points would be, check the mile markers, add urinals at the start and dont access the baggage hold of the grass - it was saturated. Very minor points though.

On Sunday 10th February 2019 I ran the inaugural East London Olympic Park Half Marathon. This event was put on by Runthrough events. After seeing the course route I really wasn't sure how the course would work However, I need not worried, the course was fine and it was really nice to see other runners running in different directions, I was pleasantly surprised.The support from spectators was low but the wind and rain more than likely didn't help! The course was mostly flat with a few steep inclines, mile 12 was felt rather steep but again the weather conditions more than likely made it feel a lot worse.If I had to pick one negative it would have to be the mile markers which seem to be out all the way around and only really corrected once we hit mile 12. (i'm sure going forward this will be sorted out)All in all I enjoyed the race and would recommend the run and will be back next year for sure.Well done to everyone involved - see you next time!
