A great race to discover a new area and also being a Olympic 2012 location ! No really crawled,which allows to run comfortable. Maybe the price quiet high without race bag or complemetary service… read more

Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Race was ok - nice and flat with tarmac paths. The challenge is that there was 2 races going on and everyone was looping around the circuit (4.5 times at various paces). The finish wasnt at all hugely apparent and I ended up going around again until my watch confirmed I had competed the distance - unfortunately my official time suggested it was at least a few mins slower than reality. Was a huge disappointment to completing a sub90 Pb.… read more

Route description

Run Course:

The course starts and ends at the impressive boathouse overlooking the lake.

Runners will set out on a pan flat 5km loop around the iconic lake. The terrain is a mixture of tarmac paths and closed, traffic free roads.

The 5km run will be 1 lap, the 10km run will be 2 Laps, the 15km run will be 3 laps and the half marathon will be 4.5 laps.

When you finish your race, competitors are required to proceed into the finish line funnel to collect your finishers medal.

As one of the flattest courses in the UK, this is a great chance to record a PB.

Super Sprint Duathlon: 2.5KM Run, 10KM Cycle, 2.5KM Run

Easy to park, and delivered on the promise of a very flat and trouble free course. Only builds for next time would be clearer mile markers defining distance passed by race. There were several markers up but it was unclear over whether it was the half or 20 miler. Also I heard confusion on the way round from fellow runners over how many laps they needed to run for the 20 mile race and they felt this hadn't been briefed correctly.

Course was nice, the gels i brought with me were inedible so having some available on the run was a saviour for me.

Nice course around the lake. It's flat so no concern about hills. Only down side is it's 4.5 loops of the lake so the scenery is a bit repetitive. Still a good race to do.

I think that you must to organiser better the indications when someone arrive to final line because I asked at 100 mt to final line in which part I had to go but anyone helped me and I turned in wrong way losting my precious minutes during the race. And it happened not only to me.

A bit disappointed with the organiser! No sign for half marathon considering its 1000 people race. We travelled some distance and spent some time to find the clubhouse. My husband came back to pick up nearly the finish, but no one open the gate to let him get in, so he had to park miles away and pushed our little son walking a couple miles and missed my finish time. Disappointing!

I ran the January event as fancied something outside of London. Great parking location made it super easy to drive there, and Martyn always does a great job of ensuring a really smooth day.

One of my favourite places to run and we got lucky with the weather. Only the third time racing with F3 and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to being back there this year

Really poor experience at the January 2018 event. Queues of 45 mins to park, 30+ mins to collect bib and chip. Certain distances cancelled less than hour before start time. Promised secure bag store, nutrition and water stations did not exist. Save your money and do a parkrun instead.
