RunThrough Chase the Sun Hyde Park 5k & 10k - April
We are bringing our Chase the Sun series back to the beautiful Hyde Park in April! Run around the flat paths of Hyde Park, a perfect venue for personal best potential and battle to get around the course before the sun goes down. 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!
