Very well organised and bit too intimidating for a first time runner!
Great race, lovely marshals and organisers
Great event, well organise and brilliant volunteers. Very club member heavy
Really great event and well organised. Not the most inspiring route (4 laps) but very flat and so many people were there for PBs. That's great for those of us who are looking for that but it does mean that it mostly attracts club runners). I can imagine non club runners might feel intimidated by this race as you can often get lapped and the times are generally quite fast.
A lot of people noted that the course was slightly long after moving back the start. This wasn't too far but it didn't seem like this was compensated for at the finishing line.
Overall a great race and will come back again for another go.
Fantastic course and great standard. The organisation is very low key but efficient.
Cheap, efficient, speedy crowd
Loved the hot tea at the finish!
Fun and well organised
A very well organised and friendly event - thank you for creating an encouraging and lovely, supportive atmosphere!
Would have made a world of difference to have organised access to the toilets in the sports center.
Nice post race snacks.
A brilliantly organised event on a fast course in a lovely location
This event was rather more "serious" than parkrun, where I, my son and his wife are regular participants, but we were made very welcome, and the fact that we were among the slower runners really didn't matter. In fact I ran my fastest 10K for about 6 years, and since I am in my 60s I was delighted with that! The organisation, with lots of friendly marshalls, nearby toilets, bag drop and refreshments was first class, I really can't fault it.
nice olace nice people, what else?
my garmin told me 10.5 km
A nice place to run and organised by nice people
It was very good the course and people very kind. First time running in London. Great experience. Thanks
I love these races, always very friendly and supportive, not crowded, great atmosphere. And I love the fruit prizes!
Ask people to bring a reusable cup for water for the end, to cut down on the plastic cups?
Excellent no-frills event for people who just love to run
Superb value for money in a beautiful park (which doesn't have a parkrun, so this is the best way to run in it). No fancy corporate nonsense like the more expensive events, but does all the basics right. Well organised, polite and helpful staff, all centres on people who want to run. Pretty quick pace (I'm sub-45 for 10k and found myself around the middle of the pack), a professional finish funnel and nice range of snacks aimed at people who actually run. Go elsewhere for Instagram shots, go here for a great race.
A wll-organised event
Lots of positive encouragement from the marshalls on the route.
A great way to start a Saturday morning
Although it attracts fast club runners there is a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for runners of all abilities. After losing touch with the 6.45 mins per mile pack, I ran with the 7.00 pack before running solo at 7.25 before a couple of strategic runners overtook me at the end.
Fast flat run in very convenient central park, with very friendly and efficient organisation. Highly recommended.
Fast field with large contingent of club runners. More of a race than a fun run, so not one I'd recommend for beginners. At 53 mins for 10k I was one of the last group of finishers.
Friendly, easy to enter, well organised, beautiful scenery - I wish all races were like this!
Great run in a stunning park
I would have liked a medal to add to my collection
Quiet and low key
Lovely Summer Sunday race with supportive crew.
This is a delightful event. Mix of runners from recreational to more serious club runners. Beautifully organised and a very supportive marshals.
Maybe a bit more water/juice/SIS drink on hand! Either way, awesome event and heaps of fun for a Saturday morning!
So much encouragement!
Always a pleasure to take part in these races. Good organisation and encouraging words.
Appreciate the time check at half way point .
Hot tea at the finish is a real treat in cold conditions.
well organised, enjoyable event. v friendly staff
Accessible, friendly and brilliantly organised
Great value for money, fantastic support from staff, and the best value for money I’ve seen for a 10k event in London. Thank you!
Best 10k in London - fast course, top organizer & value for money
Nice friendly team
Toilets were locked shut. :(
Great cheap, flat race if you're looking for a pb - thank you for the prize!
It was a shame the timing was not working but appreciate this was out of your control- hand timing seemed a little off from what my watch was saying. Lovely to get a medal/ prize for placing.
Good well organised race
A great event and good value for money
a great race always return for the next race
well organised and friendly staff
Competitive with great spirit throughout the field.
The Team have been doing this for years, their organisation is slick, the course is really enjoyable, etc etc. Put colloquially, 'it ticks all of the boxes'. Well done and a HUGE THANK YOU to you all.
Just like the Royal Mail always delivers.
Well organised, friendly and supportive
Very well organised
Friendly, informal but well-organised race series.
Fun despite the rain and cold weather! The 3km , 5km and 10km sign posts were a little confusing whilst running but overall good fun.
Great race for a PB.
Loved the pineapple for the winners.
My first 10k and really enjoyed it!
For the price and superb organisation, there is no better running events team
The people who run the Sri Chinmoy races are as friendly as they come!
Really well organised, a fast course
Possibly a bit off-putting for beginners due to the number of club runners looking for fast times.
Really well organised, a fast course
Looking forward to the next 10K.
I love this event, am struggling to find improvements.
A very well organised race in a lovely park!
Fun and friendly
Great value for money and very well organised. Warm drinks before the start was great!
I’m from Qatar and this is my first race here in London it was Awesome I really like it
Excellent race as always - thanks to the organisers and marshals
Fantastic event with minimal fuss, well organised and EXCELLENT value for money.
Fast, flat course in the beautiful Battersea Park. What more could you want?! The podium prizes of strawberries/blueberries/melons was an awesome touch :)
The event did everything I wanted & I loved the concept of the prizes for the top runners.
Predominantly quite quick runners, but being in the slower quarter, we didn't feel out of place.
Flat and fast !
Superbly organised with a competitive and friendly atmosphere.
Fast course, mostly shaded by beautiful trees - loved it
The perfect start to Shabbat. Shalom. Phil
Excellent course and friendly marshals.
Sri Chimnoy community is the spirit of running.
Just brilliant. Such fun. And a mango too!
Great flat run
v good event, low key but serious for all competitors
Well organised and well-chosen route int eh shade.
Flat, fast, friendly and competitive race
Lovely corse, great organisation, great run!
My first Sri Chinmoy run but will definitely do more. Battersea Park is a perfect place for runners, flat and very picturesque, great course for a pb. And lovely, friendly people too!
Well organised and friendly, with a great course.
Early bird race for serious runners
Well organised for most aspects, really helpful and very friendly and encouraging at the race hq and marshalls but we were fourth from the end (a quick race overall we completed in just over an hour so not real slow pokes!) but there were no cereal bars left for us:-( felt a bit like we were being penalised for being slow!! Maybe up the order next time?
Otherwise good value race
We'll run and professional
Really enjoyed the race
Very well organised and friendly event.
very well organised and great fum
Great event friendly people and a fast course
Affordable race in a quiet setting
Brilliant low-key but well-organised and friendly events with fruit trophies for the winners!
Great fast 10km around Battersea park
Sri Chinmoy run the best races I know, great for runners of all standards !
Very well thought out set up. Great value
Excellent race on a fast course in a great setting.
First event with you guys. I will be back, loved it!
Perfect event for pb setting!
Quick, flat 10k for serious runners.
Easy, gast, flat and great atmosphere
Very good race
I was very happy with the race. Staff were very friendly and very competative race.
average event. chip time should be with start number.
medals for anyone
always well organised and freindly
I would recommend these races to all runners
Flat, fast, nice setting, well organised
New start and (slightly) revised route are improvements.
Friendly, competitive and v flat race
Repetitive as you run 4 X round and seems more aimed at club runners
Sri Chimnoy community is the spirit of running.
Ooooh - and bananas & snack bars!
Very enjoyable race!
Fast Flat Friendly Race
Always enjoy the Battersea race series
very fast course with great ambience
I like the early start. This event deserves to attract more runners.
Brilliantly organised, lovely flat course, allows buggies.
My first 10K! Great Saturday morning, great experience
Super organisation. Exceptionally friendly and helpful people. The best race series in London.
Many thanks for the time and hospitality!
Hugely enjoyable - would have been nice if they had heaters on the route haha!!
Great value for money and a great standard of running
A well organised race in a good location staffed by friendly people
I can't wait for another 10k race soon! :)
The only down side is that there was no cereal bars left when I finish after 1h04 running, only a few bananas.
friednyl and well organised event , i will be back
a bit too early for me!
Brilliantly organised, great PB course
Excellent way to get out and challenge yourself within your own limits
Well organised fast race. Early start though...
I highly rate all of Sri Chinmoy races I hope they will do additional races on a Sunday. Well Done Team! Karen Samuel
Great race. Definitely coming back for more.
Well organised and good spirits all round. Fantastic marshalling and a proper feel good running event.
Great support from Sri Chinmoy, as usual!
Thank you, I could see how much the runners enjoyed the event.
A very well organised and efficient event. A large course map at the start, well marshalled and distance markers with results within the hour were all excellent. A fantastic event for a low price and worth every penny.
Marvellous in every aspect as always
Great to see Sahana Gero MBE presenting the awards for the faster runners. Could be worthwhile to ask her to provide some young musicians in warmer mornings.
Great local race (Battersea 10k), which offers value for money, well organised and a very fast course!
Well organised as usual and well marshalled. An excellent job, many thanks.
great event, but would prefer less laps (bigger circuit)
Disappointed there wasn't a chip for timing. Very nice course and helpers were friendly.
a well organised freindly race I have run it so many times
I like the Sri Chinmoy races because they keep the essential nature of running athletics.
Sri chinmoy races are essentially athletic events. A lot of club runners of all levels allow myself to perform at my best and motivated. Course is flat, well measured, Km points well signaled, and organisation is excellent. High value for money (registration fee only £12). Maybe the only one thing that could be improved (my opinion) is the time; 8:30 is too early for me! Struggling in all races to wake up my legs for racing. The start at 9:00 or 9:30 would be a huge improvement. But I guess that there will be reasons for doing at 8:30 so happy to race early anyway.
Well organised run! Great snacks provided at the end, which was a treat!
One of the organisers from today's run wasn't as friendly as the others (who were really lovely!!) - as we were overtaken by a couple of speedier runners, he said 'oh, didn't realise you were even in this race' which I found a little demoralising! Apart from that, an excellent run. Would be nice to see other beginners there too! We're not fast but we all have to start somewhere...
A very good event with good scenery!
Great location, lots of friendly Marshalls
You run these races excellently, as ever. You're real stars. Some of my favourite people. Thank you for your time.
Well organised and friendly staff
Very good route with amazing marshalls
Would be nice if everyone could get a medal
Battersea Park is. Or very good at
Removing leaves (this is nothing to do with the race organisers!!).
The race feels a little bit elitist
Start time too early i missed the race
I couldnt get there for the start time and missed the race
Really friendly race stewards
Great race with good quality runners,
yes : I love the fact that even if the price for winner category is very simple , it deliver recognition which is Important .and I love the fact that free picture is available and also the result show very quickly on Run-Britain .
Excellent, well organised 10K in a nice London Park
Excellent event as always
A good fast flat race perfect for a time trual. Thank you!
great fast race
Nice and simple race
A good race for those who have never ran 10k.
Would have liked to run on softer ground
Great little 10k.
Flat fast course. Drinks available each lap. Not too crowded - about 140 entrants when I did it. Great for a PB.
Too many laps - a longer course would have been better.
Enjoyable and convient
Small, well organised race in a beautiful location!
Chip timing - maybe?
Friendly run in a beautiful park
Very enjoyable race event
Nice if it started at 8 am in the summer months
So well organised, thank you!
Everything was perfect
well organised and friendly, as always
Friendly run in a beautiful park
Not too busy, flat course & friendly team. Will be back!
Excellent value for money and great well sign posted course. Will be back to try and beat my time!
Fun and well organised
The crowd was made up of more experienced runners, which could be intimidating for beginners, but the atmosphere was welcoming for all. Facilities were basic, but I had everything I needed. All in all great value, and I would definitely do again
Pretty good really
No. All good.
Fast, flat and well organised. race for all abilities.
Keep up the good work.
Great start to the day
Love it - been doing this race for years.. easily the best 10k in London..
Keep on keeping it real, please don't go down the commercial route like so many other have (e.g Regents Park 10k)
Lovely setting, good mixture of fast runners and beginners.
Really enjoyable morning run with a lovely event team!
Would it be possible to perhaps do two longer loops to get to 10K instead of 4 shorter ones? This would make the course bette as less repetitive. That#s the only improvement point I can think of. Lovely team! So kind and motivating.
Brilliantly organised by running experts, fast course in one of London's best parks.
Well organised and a good course. Refreshments......loos.....safety pins...all available!....course officials cheering you on... Nice coffee..after! Definitely good value for money...
Thoroughly enjoyed it - thank you very much - will definitely do another ! Also the sun shone....Bonus!!!!!
run it many times it has freindly staff great atmosphere nice chewy bars and bananas at the finish can,t fault it.
perhaps could give trophys rather than fruit.
something to look back on.
Really nice friendly and well organised race in a lovely park. Many thanks
Well organized, scenic run
Excellent 10K race for all levels, beautiful flat course and very supportive team.
LOved it. Lovely park and setting. Flat and fast
Love the fact that there is food and drink, and a place in the park to take a shower afterwards
Great support even for tail enders
Being old (77) I was relatively slow but pleased to see a V70 category. However they left off my club Ranelagh in the results and so I didn't register in our club report. This was disappointing.
I was not keen on the laps, my first time running a race with this set up so not sure I would do it again.
Friendly, low-key race.
First time, but all very organised, friendly, smiley staff who all seemed very passionate about running .
Fast, flat pretty 10k suitable for all.
Great organisers and friendly marshalls! I will tell all my friends how fabulous it was.
a great event freindly staff and tasty chewy bars and bananas at the finish run it many times.
nothing else to say a great event look forward to the next 10k.
Love these races, been doing them for years (run some in the 1980's)
Thank you Sri Chinmoy team, always enthusiastic in support and consistent in your organisation!
Smiles all round
There is always a lovely, warm community atmosphere at the Sri Chimony races. The quality of the organisation and marshalling makes for a great race
Love it! - small race with a community feel.
Profession and affordable race that appeals to seasoned runners
Well organised....flat course....lots of refreshments. ....safety pins....bag drop.....Loo.... .comfortable.
The event organisers were friendly and cheered you on.....not for absolute beginners though I don't think....
Lovely low key run well organised and lovely volunteers!
A great way to start a Saturday!
An amazing first experience! Superb organisation, great location and friendly marshals!
I am delighted to participate in the events. The organization is magnificent and the atmosphere amazing!
well run and welcoming event
A great race in a brilliant location
Great event and well organised.
