Regents Park Winter 10k series

Ummm. I'm actually thinking about signing up for this. Before I do, I'd like to find out if anyone else has taken part and how you found it?

What is it? It is a series of 6x10k races, taking place once a month, the first one on 5th October, and on the first Sunday of the month thereafter. You can take part in as few (1) or as many (all 6) races as you like, with water, bag storage and medals provided. You can sign up for a 6 race entry (£80) or 3 race (£44) or single race (£16). I think I would like to sign up for all six as it would be a good way to monitor progression through my training (you get timer chips).

Has anyone actually taken part in this before? Would anyone like to take part (I'd really like a running buddy for my first 'proper' race, although I wouldn't expect you to stick at my very slow speed).

  • Bit far for me otherwise I'd have ran one with you ;o)

  • :-) thank you

  • Looks good and what a great idea to do one 10km each month. Like you say you can monitor your progress. I hope you find a running buddy! It's a bit far(24hrs of travelling and waiting at airports) to get to the uk.

  • :-) Thank you too.

  • Thank you KittyKat, sensible advice as always :-) I think I am sleeping better too: combination of things settling down at home and lots of running :-)

  • Go for it Tanya! It's a lot of money but, barring injury, that will be an added incentive for you to train and do each run when it gets into the depths of winter. Hope you find someone to be your running partner :)

  • Thank you :-) that was my worry too: if I do pick up an injury, I'm not sure if I could get a refund. I've sent an email to the event organisers to try find out more info. They also do an equivalent summer series, which is slightly more expensive (I guess because it's more popular).

  • I ran one of the summer races in the POURING rain on Sunday. It was okay, and Regent's Park is lovely, but it is three laps of the same course. I am not crazy about that, but if you don't mind, I say got for it. it's nice and flat and The Hub, where it's based, has lockers, a fab cafe and showers.
