I loved the experience. The suits were not as durable as I thought they might be but they did the job of making us all look the same and added to the great atmosphere.It would be useful to have people at the 1k, 2k, 3k and 4k stages with signs so that you have a clearer idea of how far you have to go. I did like the fact that marshalls were cheering you on. I would love to do it next year.

This year was the best ever. Getting back into running with no pressure and to run around London at night for fun was truly awesome.

really enjoyed the Santa run, well organised and fun but the route was a little perfunctory to be fair. Found it a bit expensive for what it is.

Fantastic event, and so much fun. My sister travelled in from Germany just to attend and absolutely loved it. Organisation-wise, it was just the right level - not too hands on but we had everything we needed and more. Will be back next year!

I booked the event at the las minute, next day in the evening, I collected my Santa's suit and participant number and did check-in.. I enjoyed the atmosfer, pre-run/walk, during the run and after finishing line, drinks in the pub.I was on my own and I met some very interesting people to share the fun during the event Definitely I would like to participar again, maybe with some friend next year during the Xmas season.Well organised event, and fun running together with so many Santa's through London's landmarks.
