Chase The Sun Brixton 5k & 10k
Join us for a 5k & 10k at Brockwell Park and battle to get around the course to the finish line before the sun goes down. You can choose from a 5k or 10k – play it safe and fly round the 5k to finish before sunset, or go for the extra challenge of the 10k.
As always with RunThrough, you will each get a themed medal, water, fruit and flapjack on the day. Each kilometre is accurately marked out with distance flags and we have plenty of helpers to keep you on track and to encourage you on your way to the finish. At the end of the race you will be rewarded with your well deserved Chase the Sun themed medal!

DURING THE RACE
The race will start in waves based on your estimated finish time, with the faster runners at the start and slower near the back to avoid any congestion and the need to overtake on course.
There will be an informal grab and go water station with sealed sports top bottles on the course, however we ask that you stay hydrated before the event and if you are able to please bring your own. Bottles and camelbacks are permitted.
If you need to overtake on the course please give a wide berth of at least 1 meter around any runners.

AFTER THE RACE
