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

    A great little course and very well organised. Great that you can turn up 10 mins before the start straight from work and have a run around.....competitive or just for fun!

    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!
