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 will not be a formal baggage drop within the event village, please limit the number of belongings you bring to the event and leave anything in the car during the race to reduce contact between runners and staff. If this is not possible, please email info@runthrough.co.uk.

DURING 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.

There will be an informal grab and go water station with sealed sports top bottles on the course, however we ask that you stay hydrated before the event and if you are able to please bring your own. Bottles and camelbacks are permitted.

If you need to overtake on the course please give a wide berth of at least 1 meter around any runners.

Spitting and nasal clearance during the race is not permitted.

AFTER THE RACE

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.
