Course information

The Blackheath 3k course is a single lap which is mainly on grass and winds up and down the heath. The course crosses some roads around the heath, but these roads have been closed for your safety. The Blackheath course is relatively flat throughout.

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

There will not 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 when you finish.
