    • Did the event in 2018

      So yesteday i took part in a little 10k jaunt in Hyde Park as part of the Run Through Chase the Sun series.I have to say, considering in was pretty much slap bang in the middle of London it was very picturesque.Obviously it's location made it very easy to get to and there was plenty of toilets dotted around the park and even the odd place to pick up refreshments.The run itself was 4 laps of the park, with a 5K option which was 2 laps.I usually don't like laps but with the sun shining and surrounded by green i really didn't mind it.There were plenty of marshalls around the course offering plenty of encouragement and cheers as i plodded round.At the end there was the usual medal and water along with home made flapjacks and bananas.Overall this is one of my favourite races this year and one that i will definately do again and again, if they'll have me.
    • Did the event in 2018

      First Runthrough summer event this year. Everything is well organised. Simple and straight forward format - two laps of part of Hyde Park for 5k or you could do four laps for 10k. Chip timing too.Nice route, water, nibble, banana, flapjack and medal at the end. Free photos a bonus.Good fun

      RunThrough always have a habit of putting on great events, and this is about the tenth race of theirs that I have done this year. They have a no fuss approach and runners are at the forefront of their operations. I have a season pass for the Chase the Sun series, which works out at about £4 for each 5/10k on Wednesday nights.The Victoria Park course was flat, wide and with hardly any bends which meant it has huge PB potential. Registration is easy, number collection and bag storage smooth and flapjacks and treats available at the end. Also get free photos within 12 hours via their Facebook page. A friend commented last night that it's very similar to parkrun in terms of friendliness and great events to step up to racing. Looking forward to the next one now!

    • Did the event in 2018

      Really enjoyed running this event was well marshalled, good track, plenty of runners and good facilities.....
    • Did the event in 2017

      This was my first Run Through event and I know they're very popular with some of the @ukrunchat runners, and now I know why.Pros
      Easy registration process and reasonable price
      You can choose whether you run 5k or 10k on the day (I guess it makes for quite an expensive 5k but the flexibility is good)
      Marshalls en route to the start to point you in the right direction
      Bag drop, loos and warm up provided
      Very easy number collection process (all numbers collected on the day - you get an email with a link to check your number in advance to make this even easier)
      Fabulous medal, themed to the venue (this one has runners on it because it's the Olympic Park race).... so....
      For those who fancy it, you can enter the whole race series (I assume at a slightly discounted price) and get the whole series of fab medals.  I believe the Wimbledon one has a womble on it. 
      Brilliant marshalls, who were encouraging and high fiving and generally rather fab.  In fact, probably the best marshalls I've come across for a "short" race (ie under a half marathon).
      Not a huge amount of runners so for those who are nervous of organised "races" or it's their first, it would be a good one.
      A heron! I saw a heron - 3 times because of 3 laps. By the third lap I thought he might have pottered off to do whatever herons do on a nice Wednesday evening, bored of having people thundering past him, but I think he was a secret running fan and was probably inwardly cheering us on in Heronese.
      Very pretty course around the wetlands area of the Olympic Park.
      One water station which seemed to have plenty of water, in sports cap bottles.  I didn't actually take any as I had my own drink so can't say how much they had left by lap three.
      Fab announcer at the finish line shouting out people's names.
      Free flapjack (yum!) or banana (bleurgh) at the end.  
      Cons
      My usual minor whinge of not having a loo part way round the course.  A 5k is fine with no loo but a 10k can be pushing it for some people.  Saying that, on this particular route, it was 3 laps for the 10k and the portaloos at the start weren't very far off the course so if you were desperate you'd have scooted over there.
      It's a bit hilly.  But the good thing about a 3 lapper is that you know when the hills are coming on the next 2 laps and can prepare yourself.
      So, as you can see, waaaay more pros than cons.  Which is why I signed up almost immediately for their Crystal Palace race.  I mean, who doesn't want a medal with a dinosaur on it!

    Our Monday night races from May-August. These are 5K races on a fast, flat course, the perfect opportunity to test your speedwork or try out your first race. Monday evening races all start at 7pm, giving you time to leave work, put your running shoes on and finish your day in style.

    The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has been organising races in London since 1981. As a family of running enthusiasts we welcome competitive club runners, seasoned trailblazers, fitness lovers and novices. At all of our races you will experience a warm welcome, a supportive team of dedicated volunteers, efficient and professional race management and flat runner-friendly courses.

    Our races focus on giving each runner a good experience, an opportunity to transcend their limits and achieve their personal goals. Our inspiration is Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007), the founder of our Marathon Team, who was not only an avid athlete and pioneer in the world of running and ultra-running races, but a teacher of meditation. He recognised the sport of running as a powerful way to develop concentration, confidence, determination, peace of mind and happiness.

    Were delighted to present the Run Through Chase the Sun series! Were back mid-week, evening 5k and 10k events with some new venues; it is a battle to get around the course before the sun goes down.

    Racing around the incredible grounds of London 2012s Olympic Park, the flat and fast course is the perfect opportunity for a chip timed personal best. Starting at 7pm, you can chose to run a quick 5k or take on a full 10k. At the end of the race you will be rewarded with your well deserved Chase the Sun themed medal!

    • Did the event in 2018

      These Races are always well run  by the runthrough crew. Registration is quick and swift And providing you give yourself five minutes before the race starts you’ll always make it to the start line. This run in particular has indoor toilets inside the building attached to the Cafe which is next to the start line. The 5K is two loops of the Olympic Park and the 10 K is four loops . There are some very slight inclines but nothing to worry about if you don’t like ups and downs. The Marshall support is fantastic and there is a water station  at the beginning of each loop.  The famous run through flapjacks are waiting at the end along with a banana,  water and more often than not a sports drink.  I would highly recommend these chase the Sun runs especially if you don’t like running in the heat of the day during the summer .
    • Did the event in 2018

      absolutely love the runthrough events and this was no exception. As always:Registration online is easy, then you pick up the number on the day. The location was easy to get to.Nice that the had ‘on’ shoes there to try out. Route was well marked and marshalled, the support from the marshals was great. Course is 2 laps for 5k and 4 for the 10k, you can decide on the day. I did 10, and thought I’d find the laps boring, but they went quickly enough. Lovely medal and flapjack. Water available on the route if needed.The only slight issue this time was that the PA system wasn’t really clear. It didn’t matter though, it’s not such a massive event that it would matter if you started to far forward or back. Thank you runthrough, I will be back again, and thanks for the PB!
    • Did the event in 2017

      I'm loving these Chase the Sun races and am sad that I've only come to them late in the season.  I shall certainly be considering buying the season pass next year.Pros
      Easy to find start/finish line
      Very easy number pick up process and bag drop
      Great marshall support
      Fabulous bling, as usual
      The cafe kindly let us use their loos, and for once there were loads of ladies' loos!
      FREE FLAPJACK! (Also bananas but I don't like them so they don't get capital letters)
      Really nice, relaxed, supportive race.  Would be great for first time racers.
      Cons
      I don't think there are any!
      In summary, if you haven't got it by now, this was brilliant, and I highly recommend it.

      Really enjoyable, good venue, easy to get to, close transitions and very flat so PB friendly
    • Did the 10K in 2018

      The race was managed very well except there could have been another water station at the other end of the lake... it was very hot and there is no shade so an extra drink would of helped.Thanks
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Excellent race, really well organised and great atmosphere. Lovely scenic setting and totally flat Course! Also great to go to a race where you then also dont have to pay more to park and there arent annoying rules about using headphones.10/10 and look forward to doing it again :)

      A well organised and hassle free mid week series on a flat multi lap course around the QE Olympic Park. Chose 5k (2 laps) or 10k (4 laps).Registration and  chip pick up process was simple and effective, as with the bag drop and retrieval.The race was efficiently organised, marshalled at all the right places and with some very enthusiastic marshals. The course is not closed to the public so be wary of the occasional pedestrian or cyclist, but this did present any real problem.A wide range of ability and experience was on show so suitable for both expert and  novice runners, this series is a good opportunity to check your progress through the season.Nice touch to have commentary over the pa at the end of each lap giving encouragement and calling in runners at the finish. Also good to have free, good quality  photos available on the runthrough Facebook page.

      This was my first marathon! I loved it and I'll definitely be back for more. The course was lovely - starting from Kew Gardens, you go along the river to Hampton Court and then back the other side. Some of it is on trail so it's not a great one for quick times, but for a marathon in London, it's nice and varied and scenic. The one annoying thing was that the marathon and half marathon routes join up towards the end, so I was having to run around lots of other runners when I was completely spent, and when the course narrowed. But on the whole, great day and I'll be back.
