Your organiser

The Race Organiser creates outstanding opportunities for people to bring out their best run, swim or cycle performance.

We seek out the most inspiring and rewarding locations, develop race routes and event formats, and create a brilliant atmosphere and race day experience – offered at the best possible value. We don’t think it’s ok to ask people who are aspiring to do amazing things to pay huge sums of money, so we charge as little as we can afford, rather than as much as we can get away with.

Just finished the third 10k in this series - These events were so well organised, the marshalls and volunteers running the race are all really lovely and so supportive and made the entire series really enjoyable. Cant recommend it enough. The Hyde Park race in particular was a GREAT course - super flat, really enjoyable along the Serpentine - managed to beat my PB by a whole minute and a half!! … read more

A fun, largely flat course that's great for setting a good time. It wasn't closed to the public so there is some pedestrian avoidance but by and large the marshals do a great job of keeping that to a minimum. Very good organisation both in advance and on the day. … read more

In the shadow of Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch, Wellington Arch and Knightsbridge, you’ll run alongside the world-famous Park Lane through the lush green space of this jewel of all the Royal Parks.

The race was well organised. The volunteers were helpful and friendly. The only slight downfall from a personal point of view was that it was 2 5km laps as opposed to one 10km race, however, I appreciate this is due to limited space.

A largely flat course: perfect for beginners or those looking for a PB. Only gave the course four stars because the long straight part running along the Serpentine and back is kinda boring.Nicely organised - as per the norm with TheRaceOrganiser - and great staff!

I really enjoyed the Hyde Park 10km. The route was great although the small incline at the beginning meant it was difficult to achieve a PB. A great route though and fab scenery. Would 100% run this again :)

Good pre-race instructions in email and well organised to get everyone ready. My chip didnt register crossing the start line, so my official time didnt match my watch, but this may just be down to the crowded start. Ran this race as part of a series and generally thought it was very good value for money with the shirt, medals and goodies.

This was really good 10km race - the course is a flat and fast double loop in Hyde Park. The administration is simple yet effective and everything you would expect for the good value entry fee.

Great race with great organisation in a nice setting. Only criticism is the course was 6.31 miles not 6.2, I would have done sub 40 if it was correct distance!Other than that a really good event.

Good running weather unlike Regents Park!! Enjoyed it a lot especially as second fastest 10k for me and I wasnt last!! I liked the flatness and the scenery. Everyone - runners, marshals, organisers etc - were very encouraging and positive. Worst bit was the huge queues for womens toilets at start and having to pay 20p while the men had no queue and didnt have to pay. Easy to get to start by tube. Well organised at start and finish

Pretty much flat 10k in Hyde Park, well organized and everything really close. The start/finish line it was in front of bag drop and opposite toilets. Also Toilets at Serpentine Bar/Kitchen so pretty convenient for before-after the race. Goodie bag as well where the bag drop was so let's say literally EVERYTHING was close, meaning you don't have to drop your bag and then run to the start line.Well measured route because I think is the first race I do where my watch and the official time are pretty much the same (4 secs delay so probs my bad!)And finally really cool medal! So definitely I'd run it again!

Great race! Lovely team, great support, very well organised, good course and great medal! Only minor bits for improvement were the bag drop - the bags were moved whilst running so some people had to queue twice as they started out in the wron queue but werent told bags were moved & my new bag was put on the mud so better protection for the bags would be good. Also the goodie bag was great only gripe was both items werent that healthy despite claiming to be. Big thanks and keep up the great work!

Well organised race, good communication before, during & after. Good range of abilities racing also.Negatives - no changing facility, course had too many sharp corners (keep in mind this probably could have been avoided given the size of Hyde Park). Management of tourists on the course was also an issue, many didn't know there was a race on and were (un-knowingly) in the way.

Second time doing this race. Good course, good organisation, and a good one for spectators: prime viewing location is right by the coffee shop! "Free" loos described in the race notes still cost 20p, though

Very well organised. Not very crowded. It started on time and the atmosphere was great. They only thing I would want different, is that I would prefer one lap of 10k instead of 2 same laps of 5k. But this is a personal preference.

This is the second time I've run in Hyde Park with the Race Organiser. I've also taken part in events at Regent's Park and Hampstead Heath. These events are excellent. They're well organised and well marshalled too. Love getting a goody bag and medal at the end. I'm looking forward to continuing participating in future Race Organiser events.

When I received the news last October that I had a ballot place in the London Marathon, apart from the overwhelming mix of emotions, I just didn Know where to start with the training. I read a few blogs that recommended signing up to some 10ks in the months leading up to the marathon. That's when I found the Royal Parks 10k Winter Series. Having an organised race each month, was amazing. It kept me motivated, the atmosphere at the races was infectious each time I walked away with more determination to continue to train. They were fun and well organised, the tracks were well laid out and the volunteers were full of support and enthusiasm. The second race at Regent's Park was faced with adverse weather conditions as it had been snowing overnight, how're the race organiser team ensured it was safe for all the runners and that the event could continue. I would like to say a huge thank you to the race organiser for being a part in my marathon training and I will definitely return to participate in future events.

Good fun race with a nice flat course. Course was quite narrow in parts but restricted by park paths, one way to combat this would be to ask people to go to the start line in order of time they are hoping to complete the course to prevent course congestion over the first mile. Other than that great event and bib pickup/bag drop was well organised.
