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 each season according to you, the community.
Can't see an event you've attended?
Leave a review so an event makes the board. Events from this season need a minimum of 5 reviews so we can determine their average rating.
When does the season start and end?
The current charts recognise events that occurred between 12 August 2018 - 11 Aug 2019.How are the events ranked?
Events are ranked by their average rating from 5+ reviews during the current season. Once an event makes the board, we consider the following criteria: average course rating, average organizer rating, and volume of reviews. 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.Why is the Top Rated chart rating different to the event page?
The ratings displayed on the Top Rated charts are representative of attendee reviews from the current season for the relevant race e.g. Rotary Shakespeare Marathon. The 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.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.
