This was my second year running it with my son, who is 11. The activities in the park are great, the atmosphere and route are excellent. We even had Mo and the mascots race in our wave, and it was lots of fun. So good seeing so many people with their kids running it. Highly recommended:)

Never having raced a mile before, I didn’t really know what to expect. This was well organised, and even though I was in the 22nd wave, it was running exactly to schedule! Route was very central and easy to follow, with helpful distance markers even on such a short run. Medal at the end gorgeous, and my official time was text to me practically as I crossed the line!

Fantastic event for the family with great organisation throughout the day and loads of stuff to keep everyone entertained. We were in wave 19 of 36 and everything ran on time, from bag drop to start time. All very efficient and a fantastic atmosphere. Only £8 per adult and kids are free. Am sure we will be back again

Unique event - great atmosphere, very family-friendly, and the race only takes a few minutes! Worth hanging around afterwards as there are lots of food stalls and when the sun is shining the Mall / Green Park are great places to be!
