How to Get There

Please note parking is limited and please do your best to park before coming in via East Sheen Gate. This really helps to provide space for park users as well.
Trains either come in to Richmond and from there it's a 20-30 minute walk otherwise Mortlake is the closest station and about a 10 minute walk from Sheen.
There are plenty of regular buses stopping near Sheen Lane. Check the TFL website here for more information
Event Hub Location
Our event hub is located on the grass area to the left of East Sheen Gate carpark. You will see our orange gazebos here and come to our registration tents to collect your race pack.
Sheen Gate carpark closed for repairs in March: We apologise about this and any inconvenience caused. Please note there is plenty of parking on the roads just outside of East Sheen Gate entrance and most of these roads are free to park on but please do check on arrival and give yourself either extra time on the morning or where possible leave the car at home or travel with friends.
East Sheen Carpark, Sheen Gate, London, SW148BJ
Please note the course is a mix of trail and paths and we recommend trail shoes for this event - The course has also a gradual incline for the first 2km's - 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps (please note the half marathon is 4 laps) - off road buggies are ok - wheelchair friendly however some sections are on grass/trail - note the course may be altered at any point up to event day if necessary
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Water is available at the start/finish and at the 5km point. If you require additional fluid between these points please bring your own.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be on the Park. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. Be aware that there are deer in the Park and they occasionally cross the walking paths and roads.
Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to abide by Richmond Park Policy. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing system will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.
Can I cancel/transfer/get a refund if I can't take part?
The Fix Events cancellation/refund policy is: Up to 14 days before the event you can cancel and receive a 60% refund on your entry fees. After this point we can not offer any refunds. Up to 7 days before the event you can (i) transfer to another event or (ii) receive the equivalent amount of voucher points onto your profile for use against a future Fix event. Up to event day you can (i) transfer your place to someone else you may know who wishes to take part or (ii) do the event virtually at any time and receive your medal in the post. To do so you must email [email protected] ahead of event day. Unfortunately we cannot give refunds within 14 days of the event or transfer your entry to another event within 7 days of the event as costs have been incurred for your registration and your entry fee goes towards covering these fees.
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 run with my dog/are you canicross friendly
Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.
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)
