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!

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.
