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.
The course is on paths around the park and is a mix of undulating sections. It's a stunning location and a great run challenge!
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)
The housing crisis isn't about houses - it's about people. The lack of safe, secure and affordable homes is affecting people across the whole country. More than three million families could be one paycheck away from losing their home
Every day, 110 families in England become homeless
Every 13 minutes, another family in England becomes homeless
Please note fundraising is completely optional and there's no requirement to do so however if you decide to support Shelter, there is no minimum fundraising target, just raise what you can.
arrival & registration
Our London 5k and 10k Winter Warmer Run starts at 10am and the half marathon will start at 9am.
Registration will be open from 8.00am and will close at 9.50am so please arrive nice and early.
PLEASE NOTE you will collect your race pack at registration on the day of the event.
Race information will be sent by email pre-event and all your race details can be found within your online profile. Once registered login to check race updates, news, partner offers and more.
You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running and 2) To help with the timing system to read your time.
Bag storage is available at the event however space is limited so travel as lightly as possible.
Toilets will be within the event hub and ensure you go with plenty of time to spare to avoid long queues.
Coffee and snacks will be available for sale within the event hub.
The run will kick off at 9am for the Half Marathon and 10am for the 5k and 10k runs.
Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to avoid too much congestion on the towpaths. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing team will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.
If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.
