Organiser's Description

Join us for the first Battersea Park 5k & 10k of 2020. Battersea Park is one of London’s most picturesque parks and has been a favourite course for those wanting to run a PB! The course is totally flat, offering the perfect opportunity to push yourself to a personal best. Starting and finishing at the Parks Bandstand this course laps the park making it easy to follow and great for any spectators to catch you flying round the course.

Each kilometre is accurately marked out with sign posts and we have plenty of helpers to keep you on track and to encourage you on your way to the finish. Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!

Start Time

As many race packs will be posted out ahead of the event as possible and event communications will be sent via email in the lead up.

You will see clear signage around the event village, please follow all signage and instructions from the marshals before, during and after 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.

Well organised

My 2nd 10k race, really well organised before and after the race, course was good, well marshalled

Matthew Apps / Feb 17, 2020

Well Organised Event

A very good race, very flat and easy to pace as it is 4 identical loops. Sometimes needed to weave around slower runners due to the race being laps - however there was plenty of space and never really effected the speed at which I was able to run.

David Shepherd / Feb 17, 2020

Good race for a PB

Great flat course making for a fast run. Well organised event with the bonuses of great freebies at the end and free race photos.

Emily Young / Feb 17, 2020


This was my first proper race and it was a great introduction - the staff were organised, kind, efficient and friendly and I honestly can't think of one thing I'd improve on. The course was nice and flat, and everything was set up well so it was easy to follow. I strongly recommend!

Kayla Beare / Feb 17, 2020

Fantastic event

I loved this event: the people were friendly and helpful, everything was extremely well-organised and the atmosphere was fantastic. Will definitely go again!

Matilda Curtis / Feb 17, 2020

Great event!

Fantastic course, lovely and flat! And the people cheering you on in the high-vis were great!

Hayley Lowe / Feb 17, 2020

A perfect flat course!

This was only my third 10km race, and I was delighted to manage a significant improvement on my previous times! This was hugely helped by the totally flat route. I enjoyed the 'lap style' route, as ticking off each lap made the end seem tangibly closer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The course was well marked. The medal was excellent! Highly recommended!

Antonia Brown / Jan 14, 2020

Well organised and nice route

Live close by so the route is familiar, but it was really well organised, marked, and stewarded. Recommended.

Aaron Everitt / Jan 06, 2020

Great race

I chose this one to improve my PB - which I’ve done. Great organisation. I really like them because they care. From the start to the finish, everything was spot on and pictures being free is a big plus. Thank you!

Georgia Szollosi / Jan 06, 2020

Well organised fun event

Everything from the cheery choir to the clothes stalls and well placed water station

Dawn Coburn / Oct 06, 2019


That’s for allowing me to tick this of my bucket list

Rohan Scott / Oct 06, 2019

Friendly, well organised run

Great flat run with lots of friendly people involved. My first time running a 4 x lap course & that was a bit boring to be honest but it was a fun event to be part of
