Run to the Beat Review – London Half Marathon – 8th September 2013

by Simon Chapple

Where do I start with this one…it was an organisational disaster!

Run to the Beat 2013







I ran Run to the Beat in 2012 when it started and finished at the O2 Arena, while it wasn’t the best event in terms of organisation, I enjoyed it enough to run again in 2013, what a mistake.

2013 saw the Run to the Beat organisers move the start/finish to Greenwich Park, using the same start as the London Marathon, a nice touch.

I attended the race with my wife and her friend, it was my wives first half marathon and I had recommended this one to her as the ideal introduction.

We had booked car parking through Park at my House, it only cost £10 and was a stones throw from the start, this was a great move as there is no official car parking and organisers recommend using public transport.

Thankfully, the weather was good and the race village had a nice atmosphere, plenty of stands and short queues for the toilets, thumbs up for this.

Advice, Reviews & Stories for Running Addicts

by admin-runningmarathons

Welcome to Running Marathons, as a keen runner for over 10 years I decided to set up my own website to offer advice and reviews to other runners.

The main point of the site is to act as an online running journal with reviews of the 10k, half and full marathons I take part in, hopefully this will help other runners decide whether they want to take part in an evert (or not).

I also provide reviews on running products and services.

If you are a runner, please comment on any posts that take your interest and leave your own reviews of any runs you have taken part in.
