Course information

The Battersea Park course is nearly all on tarmac, running along the internal roads within the park. The course is suitable for wheelchairs as it is predominantly flat. Battersea Park is the only evening event in London and offers you a slightly different experience as you will be taking part in the summer twilight.

Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

There won't be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the refill station after you finish.

Meeting point

Please enter the park via Rosary Gate and turn left down Carriage Drive South, following signs and directions from stewards to the event area. The event area can be found behind the all weather sports ground.
