COVID-19 INFORMATION

NHS Test and Trace will be in operation at this event. Participants will be required to complete a health declaration prior to arrival and to check-in where possible using the NHS COVID-19 app (available to download in advance for iOS or Android). Any information obtained will be held for 21 days after the event only and will not be used for any other purpose. Participants may not be permitted on site if they fail to follow this process, the full requirements for which will be communicated to all pre-registered participants in the week prior to the event.

One-way navigation and social distancing signage will be present on site to facilitate adherence to official guidance. Queue markers must be observed at all times and sanitisation stations used as frequently as necessary.

Unless there have been any changes following communication of the final pre-event information, there will be no event briefing on the day. Participants should read the communication thoroughly to familiarise themselves with the event details.

Participants will start individually at 10-15 second intervals to maintain social distancing with a recommended 15-30 minute arrival window allocated and communicated prior to the event.

Whilst running, participants should only overtake when there is enough room (at least 1m) to do so.

Once finished, participants should continue moving and follow signage and steward directions to keep the area clear for other finishers. Any post-event rewards (medal, water etc.) will be self-service (following hand-sanitisation) to ensure there is no contact amongst staff and participants.

Organiser's Description

Battersea Park, on the south bank of the River Thames, is an oasis of tranquillity and natural beauty. With riverside views, a boating lake and hidden gardens tucked away amongst the trees, this inner-city park is the ideal location for a run.



The park opened in 1858 and is steeped in history. It occupies land formerly known as Battersea Fields which was used to grow lavender and asparagus. It was also known as a popular spot for duelling, The Duke of Wellington, and the Earl of Winchilsea famously met here for pistols-at-dawn. But this was hundreds of years ago; when you hear the starter pistol on the day all you'll need to worry about is racing to the finish line!



Not unfamiliar with sporting events, the first football match played under Football Association rules took place at Battersea Park 1864. Soak up the competitive atmosphere and go for your best time! Take in the park's gold and red canopy overhead and spot the London Peace Pagoda and famous sculptures fly by as you chase down your PB on the flat, smooth paths of the park.



Once you've sprinted across the finish line and collected your special souvenir medal, drop in at the Putt in the Park Cafe, or the Pear Tree Cafe by the lake, for some post-run refreshments
