  • 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

  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    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 :)

    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!

  • Did the 10k in 2018

    I do looked forward to this run but unfortunately the heat just got the better of me. Such a pity this run started so late as by 10am it was Scorturing hot. Very disappointed in the result and the whole experience.

  • 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.

  • Did the Kew Gardens 10k in 2018

    The event was well organised and the route was great although some parts were a bit narrow. The medal and finishers t-shirt were great quality (a proper nike t-shirt that I have since worn many times). Runners and their friends and family can spend the day in Kew Gardens for free.
  • Did the Marathon in 2017

    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.

  • Did the event in 2017

    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.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Fantastic organisation and marshalls, Run Through is my favourite run organiser of all I have ran with.
    There was an issue however with the timings as the results showed me only having completed 5 of 6 laps until I queried it.
    The other negative for this particular venue is there is nowhere near enough toilets and they could do with portaloos.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Nice course, with a few small hills (due to it's location on the road circuit of Lee Valley VeloPark). The marshals did a great job of encouraging - so big thanks to them.

    This is probably not the fault of the organisers, but it took so long to locate the water fountain to fill my bottle pre-race. Just as well I'd allowed enough time for things like that!

  • Did the event in 2017

    Run Through really do know how to put on a good value race.  All of the Chase the Moon series (new for winter 2017/18) are at the Olympic Park, I assume because of lighting issues. Pros
    Loads of loos, both at the course and in the nearby shopping centre
    Well organised bag drop
    Chip timing
    Free banana, flapjack and water at the end
    Brilliant medal
    Fabulous Marshal support
    Free photos
    Choose 5k or 10k on the night.
    Cons
    I'm not sure I'd want to do the 10k option on this route as it's 4 laps.
    These really are great events for a very reasonable price.

  • Did the 10 km in 2018

    Well organised event. Enjoyable route, and a decent medal at the end. It was a novelty to run somewhere in London with lots of parking!
  • Did the event in 2017

    well, what can I say?runthrough events are great, you get a consistency of approach and great value. You register online and collect your number when you arrive, saves on cost. we arrived in heavy sleet/snow and were not sure if the event would even go ahead. It was going ahead.... and this meant that the marshals had a sense of responsibility to keep us safe. They briefed us on the course, to make sure we took it easy and didn’t go for PBs. The route was good,  so glad it was one loop not laps! It was kind of pretty in the snow. Definitely distracted us from the running, and the slush accumulating in our shoes. The marshals were excellent on the course, they must have been cold! The medals were lovely. And the flapjacks never tasted so good.

Hitchin Hard Half Marathon

This is a hilly, measured course on country roads. It follows an out and back route from Hitchin up to Preston via Offley Holes hill.

This beautiful but tough 10k starts in Hitchin Priory and follows the half marathon course up to Preston, with the hill into Preston the biggest challenge to overcome! This race was added to the Hard Half in 2015 for runners looking to enjoy a challenging 10k run.

This beautiful 5k starts in Hitchin Priory and follows the half marathon course for some of its distance. It's a more gentle route and gives you the chance to enjoy a good run through some of the most attractive parts of Hitchin and Gosmore.

  • Did the event in 2018

    Really loved this one. The scenery was beautiful from start to finish. Not too many marshalls but enough and all encouraging. Local support was fab. Very well organised from booking to race day and very straightforward on the day. Will definitely be back next year
  • Did the event in 2017

    The race is organised by the Rotary Club of Hitchin Tilehouse and the race start and finish is set in the fantastic grounds of Hitchin Priory. The majority of runners sign up for the half marathon so the 10k and 5k are a nice size to compete in. I would describe it as a local race feeling and not over commercialised. All well organised though from what is expected from a more commercialised organiser. I was originally signed up for the half marathon, however due to a hamstring injury which I recovered from I contacted the race team to downgrade to the 10k as I was still recovering and not race fit for the HM.  This was no problem even though it was only ten days from the race start.  The race organisers were more than accommodating in changing chips and race entries.  They were also willing to defer the entry to the following year if needed.  On the race organisers, they are fantastic in providing regular emails to update runners on event information. Parking was easy and plentiful by utilising the local town car parks (no more than a 10 min walk) with an early race start.  You could pick up your race numbers and chip either at the start or a day earlier in the local town centre, but there is no posting of race numbers.  At the start and finish area there is plenty for those remaining behind to be occupied with, bouncy castles for children and refreshments and music for others.  The starts of the races are staggered so the HM sets of first, then the 10k and then the 5k.  All are provided with a free warm up service if that flicks your switch.  If not the grounds of the priory allow you to warm up away from the crowds...The route is very hilly, the clue is in the title of the race, Hitchin Tough 10k.  Apart from the start of the race, where approximately the first mile is on country side grass hills and fields the rest of the race is on tarmac.  Then and up until approx three miles it is on a secluded countryside road with no traffic which allows you to choose your racing line.  It then enters a B Road where you are restricted to staying left on the road, which the race organisers have no control over as roads are not closed, but you battle the road camber which is quite severe in places.  A number of cars did pass during this section but they kept their speed to a minimum.  As there are no road closures there are no earphones allowed.  The cost of the 10k was £16 for non affiliated runners which is a fair price for a medal and goody bag.  The route had two water stations with wattle bottles with caps off handed out by ample race marshalls at each. The crowds in the country side dwellings were fantastic and well supported with local children and supporters handing out sweets etc.  A word of advice if you are considering running this race be aware of the hills for either the HM or 10K that share the same hills.  You will need to work on hills in your race training to meet your pace expectations for either events.  Luckily I had prepared enough to be competitive and finished third.  I was presented with a cash prize and a classy glass trophy, again a good reflection for a fair entry price.I would absolutely enter this race again with its good local feel factor and would recommend it.
