About
East London is at its best in this recurring race through Victoria Park. The course is pan flat, so it's a great race if you're chasing a PB. Victoria Park is one of London's nicest parks and this is a great way to explore it. Come for the finisher's medal and locally famous homemade flapjacks.

RunThrough always put on such great events and this was exactly that. The course was well marshalled and the race information was very clear before race day. Results were online as soon as we finished and the pictures were uploaded before I even got home. WELL DONE RUNTHROUGH

Another well-organized event by RunThrough. This is a quick course for PBs, and the post-race snacks are always great (those home-made flapjacks are gold)

Victoria park was nice as usual, with a well-marshaled course and the ever-fantastic chase the sun finisher's medal. The rain made it a bit depressing, but considering the weather it was a great race!

A great, low-key 10K around Victoria Park. Very nicely organised and with a easy to follow and clear course, I wouldn't have changed anything. Really enjoyable and with a friendly and fun atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Really nice race. Wonderfully run. Good location. My only concern with the course is that there were other people running and biking around it, and I wondered about the potential of a collision.

No sun to chase this time but the rain didn’t dampen our spirits. Superbly organised but Lucy and her team. And flapjacks on point once again.
