Course information

The Hampstead route takes place on Hampstead Heath and is a circular, single lapped course, starting and finishing on East Heath. The route takes place on tarmac but also runs through the woodland area with a few steep hills in places.

Please be aware that the Heath is a very large area with multiple entrance points. It can take over 30-40 mins to get from one end of the Heath to another, so please arrive at the correct entrance on East Heath Road. The closest postcode is NW3 1TH which should take you closest to the event site
