Organiser's Description

Join us for a 5k & 10k at Brockwell Park and battle to get around the course to the finish line before the sun goes down. You can choose from a 5k or 10k – play it safe and fly round the 5k to finish before sunset, or go for the extra challenge of the 10k.

Each kilometre is accurately marked out with distance flags and we have plenty of helpers to keep you on track and to encourage you on your way to the finish. At the end of the race you will be rewarded with your well deserved Chase the Sun themed medal!

There is a small car park next to the leisure centre and pool right next to the start, however, this will fill up quickly so it's best to find spaces on the surrounding roads.

Great experience. I ran the 5k run yesterday and I was really impressed! I have never ran a full 5k without stopping to walk before but the run is so well laid out and the asssistants around the course were extremely encouraging that I was able to run the whole way! It was really well organised and the water and snacks at the end were very appreciated! It made the running experience much more enjoyable as it felt like I was part of a team and I was really encouraged to keep going and I was able to make my goal of running the whole way without walking!
