About Top Rated

If you're like us, the first thing you look for when choosing an event is reviews from past attendees. We value reviews so much, we're compiling a series of Top Rated charts to celebrate the best challenge events and organizers each year according to you, the community.


Can't see an event you've attended?

Leave a review so an event makes the board. Events from the last year need a minimum of 5 reviews so we can determine their average rating.


When does the year start and end?

The current charts recognise events that occurred between 24 November 2019 - 24 November 2020.

How are the events ranked?

Events are ranked using an algorithm that takes into account review ratings and volume of reviews.

Why is the Top Rated chart rating different to the event page?

The 1-10 ratings displayed on the Top Rated charts are representative of attendee reviews from the current year for the relevant race e.g. Rotary Shakespeare Marathon. The star rating displayed on event pages is representative of attendee reviews from all seasons for all races at an event e.g. Rotary Shakespeare Marathon and Half Marathon.

What are Flagship Events?

Flagship events are running events that are attended by 10,000+ people. These are the largest events in the UK and are a great experience for runners of all experience levels.

How is the UK divided into North and South?

UK South contains events within the East of England, London, the South East, and the South West. UK North contains events within the East Midlands, the West Midlands, the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, the North East, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The Cosford Spitfire 10k
“Excellent event, well organized and really friendly. Nice even course with happy, encouraging marshalls. The medal is superb - probably the best one I've ever received. Added bonus of staying on after to enjoy the museum. Well done to everyone involved.”

Wakefield Hospice Night Run 10k
“I did this run as it was a local one and wasn’t disappointed! Parking was excellent being in very close proximity to the start. Just a couple of issues trying to cross the main roads to the actual start point. The run appeared well organised and there were plenty off Marshall’s out on the course! The course was downhill and flat on the way out then undulating on the way back with an uphill to the finish which was a challenge! A medal at the end would have topped it off! Lack of water at the finish was disappointing. Found water being handed out half way up the hill walking back up to car park, along with chia bars being handed out! Run was excellent and will definitely return next year. 😁”

Trionium Knacker Cracker 10K
“This is a very challenging course, but you are distracted from it by the utterly ridiculous fancy dress displayed by most runners :D The hills are very steep, it's no place for a PB, but it's a great way to start the year! If I had knackers, they would have been cracked. As it goes, I am just knackered.”

Hillsborough Castle Running Festival
“+ Fun course +Great marshals +Lots of quality pictures - Communication for parking was a bit delaying in getting to us -The end was a bit of muddle of fast finishers running into slow runners of the short races. Could you mark lanes for 5K, 10K, HM finishes”

Forestry 100 Running Series Westonbirt
“We were blessed with sunny weather for this scenic run through the Arboretum. All volunteers were helpful and friendly. The course was on hard pack paths with a few undulations so not a PB course but fun all the same for the good turnout of around 600 runners. I only gave 4 out of 5 for atmosphere as the spectators cheering you on were only in key areas on the course, definately could have used some encouragement up the final hill! ”

Chessington Running Wild
“As a slow runner & Party At the Back-er, I was very impressed by the support offered from the race officials throughout. The water stations, medals, post race snacks etc. were still in good supply when I crossed the finish line as the last runner for the race. Kyra the tail runner was brilliant. She was close enough if I needed her, but kept enough of a distance between so I didn't feel like I was being chased to finish quicker than I could. Even the support from fellow participants was great. People who had finished their races were supportive as I made my way slowly through the event. I was apprehensive about running and had contacted the organisers in advance about cut off times, support etc. & was reassured that they don't pack up till the last runner is through... and they didn't! It is a really inclusive event - hilly in places for a newbie like me - but well worth it, especially the big hug from one of the organisers at the end of the race! ”

The Clacton Half Marathon & 10K
“Loved the race and will be coming back next year! The crowds seemed a little flat and couldnt really hear what was being said on the mic if you wernt right next to the speaker. Medal looks awesome and the location is perfect! Reasonable entry fee, loads of parking and clearly signposted. Really impressed overall.”

The Mount Ephraim 10K
“A challenging hilly course on good roads. Well marshaled. The only negatives are that the last 100m to the finish was partially blocked by those that had already finished running to the car park in the rain. That needs sorting out for next year!! Also the bag drop was not under cover so all the bags ( containing a change of clothes) got soaked... wouldn’t take much to put a gazebo over them. Otherwise an enjoyable race”

The Cannock Chase Half Marathon & 10K
“Great volunteers, challenging course wouldn't advise anyone if choosing a first race. Set my watch as soon as I hit the start line and when finished it clocked 11k so not sure the route was as accurate as 10k. I would be interested in doing it again though as I now know what to expect ”

Cardiff 1.5k, 5k & 10k MoRun
“Very much enjoyed the race, good course, muddy/crowded in parts but that can't be helped. Crowds were great and everyone was really friendly and encouraging. My only criticism would be the bag drop. Putting everyones property on plastic sheets on the floor in torrential rain is asking for trouble. My bag was soaked through and covered in mud. Could have easily been avoided by getting some pallets to raise all the bags etc off the floor. Maybe next time! ”

The Wendover Woods Autumn Festival of Running
“It was not clear where the race registration was as it was down a hill from the cafe with no signs to tell you where to go. The start was not well organised, we set off in waves of 10, but they had not been pre-arranged, so 10 random people were called up to the start line at a time - it was pretty chaotic. The course itself was great, muddy and hilly. It was wide enough for overtaking. Would recommend even if the start was pretty crazy. ”

London Spitfire 10k
“A nice course, but at times the paths were very narrow which meant it was difficult to get round - especially when the fast runners were overtaking on their second loop. There was also a bit of traffic to negotiate, and didn't help when one of the marshalls allowed the cars to keep moving when we were just about to cross the road! According to the website, my results don't exist which is a shame. Otherwise, it was enjoyable and a really nice atmosphere.”
