The event which took place at Wembley Park was a rave like event filled with LED lights, UV paint and the brightest tutus this side of London. The event was sold as more of an "experience" than a sporting event, with the runners making up part of the lit up landscape. It was meant to feature "lands of light and sound that transport the participant into an electric wonderland" but I felt it failed to deliver on it's fully immersive experience. It was a nice course with a fun atmosphere, but parts of the run failed to have any music and large parts of the track seemed to rely solely on what the participants were wearing and carrying.
That said, I would totally do it again next year. As this was their first London event, it was always going to be a bit of a trial run and when looking at it like that, it wasn't a bad attempt. I'm sure next year will bring even bigger and better things for the course. And most importantly, I've raised over £200 for Beast Cancer Care, and couldn't be more thrilled - I really do have the best friends in the world and am so grateful to everyone who's helped, sponsored and put up with me!

I'm still allowed to accept donations for the race until July, so if you would like to donate some money towards the charity Breast Cancer Care, you can do so here.
