      The course was pretty hard, not helped by the wet conditions in the pilgrims way and the large hill at 12/ mile 25.

      Some admin issues. I didn't receive the crucial email with the event details which affected my travel arrangements. My name wasn't on the list. The timing chip recorded a time which was more than 20 minutes slower than my own gps time.

    From the organiser

    A scenic late spring run starting from the Bewl Water Visitor Centre and following the Bewl round the reservoir route. Both courses are run on a combination of undulating rural wooded trail and along some quiet country lanes, with lovely views of the lake for most of the route.

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      I really like the course itself, around Bewl water. Mostly on a trail, with only a few patches properly wet/slippery, it's a very enjoyable run.I personally liked the absence of distance markers. Disappointed with the food available at checkpoints but that's personal preference.Very disappointed with the finish though. There was barely anything, no celebration and no indication of your time...The start was also a complete shamble, with most runners not knowing where to go after the first mile...
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Terrible! It was a hard route due to the combination of trail with road, however, the views along the route were great. The GPS tracking shows the route was a mile over the 1/2 marathon distance, the race started 1/2 hour late due to not enough people checking runners in, the course was over crowded but the worst part of the day was getting to the finish line to be told they had run out of medals!
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      The hills are very steep towards the end make sure you train for that. All the hills were right at the end of the course so brace for it.

    • Did the 42k in 2018

      This was a really really frustrating "race". For 45 it left a lot to be desired. It could have been so much more. And having to buy a map of the course on top was a rather cheeky. Expensive for what you get. The course could have been amazing and it did take in some lovely places, however it was really really poorly marked in places, and there were no marshalls other than on the 6 aid stations. ( It was very very hot and these should have been increased in the conditions). There needed to be marshalls on the road crossings to increase safety. Plus marshalls at confusing points along the course. There were lots of people who got lost a number of times, due to poor marking. It isn't sufficient that the course markers know it, they need to consider people who come aren't local. There needed to be arrows on the ground pointing the runners the right was, not just dots of chalk after a junction and wrong way markings need placing to stop runners going wrong. Runners go quickly and don't want to stop. A bespoke medal with the T-shirt would make this more value

    About the event
    From the organiser

    A choice of two Summer runs starting and finishing at the YMCA Hawker Centre (Kingston), proceeding towards the Thames Path on an out and back flat and fast scenic riverside route that is very well marked and marshalled all the way along. Both the half marathon and the marathon courses are both at and fast so were expecting some great PBs.

    Reviews
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      This was my first ever running race, and I loved it! The course was a very beautiful trail along the River Thames, the organisation of the start was good. No issues with bag drop or bib collection. There was a long queue for the toilets before the race, but that seems pretty standard at these things. Good spacing of water points and good communication via email in the week leading up to the race. Not a huge crowd of spectators along the route, but the locals who were out certainly cheer you on. I'd highly recommend this for someone who is looking for a scenic, flat trail run in London - I'll definitely be signing up again next year!

    From the organiser

    Welcome to London's Flattest Course! All on road and path inside Kew Gardens.

    Take on one of London's most exclusive runs - passing through leafy Kew Gardens and alongside the beautiful river Thames. Join our team for this autumn riverside run and help fund our life-saving heart research.

    This is the only time you can ever run in the World Heritage Site, Kew Gardens! London's most exclusive race starts inside Kew Gardens and finishes in an all-day family festival in Old Deer Park.

    The Richmond Family Mile is a funrun for all ages. This is NOT a race and the intention is to allow the whole family get involved (especially children). There is NO time limit for entrants. Every runner with a bib receives a RUNFEST triangle medal and NIKE Tee shirt at the end.

    The Borough of Richmond Upon Thames is the most uniquely beautiful part of London given its essential character, history, significance, and its gifts of nature. It is only right that Richmond Upon Thames should have a unique day to celebrate all the wonders this borough has to offer.

    • 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 Half Marathon in 2018

      Managed to PB! Supporters and volunteers where great - especially the kids at the feed stations! The things that i found a bit annoying, which is not the fault of the organisers, was the how narrow some paths got and the general public that would not move out of the way. Cyclist were also zooming past quite quick and way too many loose dogs.

    • Did the Owler Half Marathon in 2018

      This is a tough course! Not huge hills but "undulating" from about 2 miles until 11. The toughest bit is that the terrain is muddy grass, country lanes and muddy bridle paths. Don't let that put you off though! A hard choice is the running shoes - First time I wore road shoes and struggled in the mud, this year I wore trail shoes and smashed my legs on the lanes! However, this is my favourite race and will be back again next year! As it's quite a small field, there will be time you are running on your own, but a good opportunity to make new running friends.
    • Did the Owler Half Marathon in 2018

      I found the race great. Very challenging through the mud but I still had a great experience. A few marshals were too quiet and some points we needed more cheers and support to keep us going through the course. Drink stations were amazing and so well organised. Overall a very good event.
    • Did the Owler Half Marathon in 2018

      A superb emotional experience! Thank You.I have only been running for 5 months and built up to 13.1 miles a few weeks back albeit on pancake flat roads. As this event was very local to me I signed up. Didn't know what to expect, I suppose my biggest fear was getting lost, but the every junction was signposted and had a marshal. The terrain did take me by surprise, a lot more mud than I was expecting and there was a killer hill at the half way point.

    Having quickly become the second biggest marathon in the UK, the Brighton Marathon sure isn't one to miss. Bringing in runners from all over the world, you'll struggle to find better crowd support, race atmosphere and ocean views at another 26-miler.

    The fast and flat course boasts men's and women's records of well under 2:10 and 2:30, making it one of the fastest marathons in the UK. The marathon was bron in 2010 and has quickly developed into a marathon weekend, made up of the Brighton Marathon, BM10k, Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races and the event village.

    The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the six World Marathon Majors and the undisputed king of the UK race calendar. Over 400,000 hopefuls went into the ballot for the 2019 event - a new record.

    The famous route takes athletes past London's historic sites, and crowds that have to be seen to be believed. In 2016 runners raised more that 59 million for charity, breaking the record for an annual single-day charity fundraising event for the 10th year in a row. The event has raised over 1bn for charity since 1981 and completing it is a lifetime ambition for every runner.

    • Did the London Marathon in 2018

      This is one of those races that everyone (whether or not you consider yourself a runner) should do at least once in their lifetime. It's London at its best, and there were people lining the sides of the course for the entire 26.2 miles. The atmosphere was absolutely awesome as a result. This was the first time I had run the London Marathon and it did not disappoint, I'll definitely be running it again. The start of the course through Greenwich is stunning, try not to go off too fast (I definitely did, and soon regretted it given how hot it was this year). Once you're the other side of Tower Bridge (half-way) it gets a little bleak, but once you get back to the river at mile 23, the pain becomes a lot easier to deal with! If you haven't done this race before, you have to do it!

      2018 was the hottest on record, which strangely made it the best as so many people came and supported in the sun! A largely flat course makes it possible to achieve your personal best. I'll definitely do it again, absolutely loved it!

    • Did the Bournemouth Half Marathon in 2018

      It was an early start at 8 am. The sun was very welcome as it helped warm up a cold morning. We ran through the neighborhoods and headed for the coastal roads. Some beautiful views here looking out to the coastline. There were also a couple of small hills as we went down to the boardwalk and then back-up to the roads. There's a pretty tough hill around mile 9 that slowed us down. Once we caught our breath back, the final two to three miles was exciting as we made our way to the crowds and ran along the piers and onto the finish line.
