How To Get There

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/Bike - The Common is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available.

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.

Parking

There is no car park on site. If you park on the roads around the Common, check the pay machines and watch out for permit areas.

Course Details

We have marshals around the course and signs, but this is not a road race, you must pay very close attention to where you are going.

There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of people, dogs & cyclists. 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 in 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

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.
