Well organised, friendly and a good mix of club runners and newbies on a nice flat course, in a park. What more could you want? See you again soon.

Some really strong athletes competing even though it’s a small event. Battersea park is a beautiful setting - it’s 2 laps of it.

Such a fun, low-key evening race around Battersea Park. Great organisation and no faff. Definitely one for PBs!

Great local race, very friendly marshals and a good clean registration process. Excellent value for money and some really impressive athletes turning out. There was a couple of km markers missing (from memory 2k and 3k), which wouldn't have been a problem had I not forgotten my watch!
