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 around the course.
As always with RunThrough, you will each get a themed medal, water and post race snacks on the day. Each kilometre is accurately marked out with signposts 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!

How to Get There

For details on how to get to the park from nearby public transport visit tfl.com.
The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.
There will be marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course is two laps for the 5k and 4 laps for the 10k on the roads/paths in the park.
There WILL be pedestrians on the paths. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you. Please be aware of people, cyclists and dogs.
We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
Battersea Park itself has two sets of toilets, they are a little walk from the Start/Finish so ensure you take this into account. If you see a toilet on the way walking in, we recommend you use that.
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and bananas for when you finish :-)
You are free to wander around the park so you can see where the competitors will be running. It is lapped so you will see them on numerous occasions.
