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 17 October 2020 - 17 October 2021.

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 SimplyHealth Great North Run
“4th time running GNR and this year ran for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I love this event, even though there are 50k+ runners, you are made to feel you are still one special runner. Supporters are just amazing. You really do not need to carry water or snacks as they are available throughout the race. Children handing out ice pops, haribo, oranges etc! The event is busy as you may expect but the overall atmosphere is incredible. Loved the showers and hosepipes especially as it was very hot. Also spray sun tan lotion available at the start - great if runners had forgot to bring! My favourite part of the race has to be the start, the famous music 🎶 played in the TV and commentator. I love the last couple of miles when you run down the hill to South Shields seafront. I definitely want to go back for my 5th time. Every runner should at least run this once. ”

Cardiff Half Marathon
“Great atmosphere, though the crowds getting to the race then the finishing and getting away from the race were somewhat testing 😬 was just for short while though. I wouldn’t recommend this for a person best because there were simply too many runners. ”

Manchester Half Marathon
“My first visit to Manchester for a race. We used park and ride and it was awesome, very easy to get to the start. Despite the weather it was a great course, very flat and perfect for a PB. The finish however was a real let down. No t shirt and the goodie bag was not great, though I did enjoy the beer. I think for the price, more could be done. Not bad, not the best though.”
