Course Details

A flat course around clapham common which is 2 laps for the 5k and 4 laps. The majority of the route is on footpaths in the park running past Clapham Common Bandstand on route.

The final 75 meters of the route is on gravel and is quite testing.

5k = 2 laps / 10k = 4 laps

There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of people, dogs & cyclists. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We do not recommend you use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you. The nature of a park/common is that there are people doing whatever they so please, we can have no control over stray dogs or people running the opposite direction etc so please be aware.

Location

Mount Pond, Windmill Drive, London, SW4 9DE

A very well organised and fun event. Clapham Common Chase the Sun 5 and 10km event; I did the 10km. Getting the number, chip and bag drop was all very efficient. A short group warm up was available. Music was playing and it had a fun vibe. The race started exactly on time. The course was well marked out and had plenty of marshals and additional lighting. At the end the medal and goodies were all good. I really enjoyed it and I definitely recommend it.

I ran with my dog. Thank you for a great evening run! Really well organised, friendly staff and so much enthusiasm! Thank you for letting me run with my dog too, although next time I will leave him at home as he was a nightmare running partner! Will sign up again for sure x

5/5. 5/5, I thought it was incredibly well run. I was amazed at the amount of people who were there to help, and how helpful they were. I plan on entering for a few more races.
