Easily the most well organised race in the London area (I’ve run most of them from 10k to full marathon), the Royal Parks Half keeps, ahem, knocking it out of the park. The start area today could have substituted for a Tough Mudder, but that didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm.
I ran the inaugural race in 2008 and have only missed a couple since, collecting my 10th race t-shirt today. I don’t run it quite as fast as I used to but it’s still the most enjoyable race on my calendar.
I hope to return next year in better shape, for my 11th shirt. Kudos to the team who put this awesome event together each year. You rock!
