How to Get There

Address: Mount Pond, Windmill Drive, London, SW4 9DE

Driving - There is no car park on site. If you park on the roads around the common, you will need to check the pay machines and watch out for permit areas.

Tube - The start is roughly 5 minutes walk from either Clapham Common Tube or Clapham South Tube, we will be 100m east of the bandstand. Follow the running crowds and look for the signs.

Train - The common is around 1 mile from Clapham Junction. So if you want to get the overground, you can either take a stroll (warm up?) or take the 35, 37 or 345 bus.

By Foot - The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.

Please, wherever possible walk, jog, run, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Please also watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving. You can use TFL to help plan your journey.

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 a bag drop area within the event village where you can safely leave your belongings whilst you run.


There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and water at the finish alongside other post race goodies!

During the race

We will have marshals all around the course as well as KM signs and arrows. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park - be aware of people walking, dogs & bikes.

please note

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.

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

The race was amazin. I did my first find a race' at Clapham Common Chase the sun a few weeks a ago! 6 months ago I couldn't even run up the stairs! (Lol) The race was amazing, all the people there were super helpful and the atmosphere has made me want to run in as many races as possible! 5 stars all round!

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.
