How to Get There
There is parking in and around the park so please check and ensure you arrive with plenty of time to spare. From the main carpark in the centre of the park head down to the lower section of the park near the Lower Lake and at the entry from High St/Thicket Road and the event hub is on the grass area up from the park toilets.
Trains travel frequently to Crystal Palace and the park is only a few minutes walk from the train station.
Event Hub Location
The event hub is based on the grass section above the dinosaur playground and also above Grand Centre Walk. You will find our orange gazebos here.
From the main carpark in the centre of the park head down to the lower section of the park near the Lower Lake and at the entry from High St/Thicket Road and the event hub is on the grass area up from the park toilets.
Please note the course is path and we recommend road running shoes for this event - The course is undulating with some steep sections - 5k is one lap and so on for the additional distances - buggies are ok - wheelchair friendly - note the course may be altered at any point up to event day if necessary
Do you have any age restrictions / can children take part?
Absolutely! We typically allow children of all ages to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run 5k or 10k unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.
Can I run with a buggy?
Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)
Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?
We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!
Can I wear headphones?
Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)
