Organiser's Description

We are excited to be continuing our RunThrough Chase the Sun series in 2021, and will be back at the wonderful Wimbledon Common in May!

Join us at the Common and run either 5k or 10k and race round the course before the sun goes down. Starting at 7pm, you can either play it safe and race around a quick 5k, or take on a full 10k before the sun sets. At the end of the race you will get your hands on your well deserved Chase the Sun themed medal!

Run through the picturesque Wimbledon Common; this flat trail course is the perfect way to spend a Summer’s evening!

Yet another Event. I just love the Run-Through group Events! Being a novice to Running Events, they have made everything very simple & extremely enjoyable at each Event so far. Can't wait for the next one! X

Nice evening out. Mostly friendly marshals although some looked very bored and uninterested! Well organised registration process, nice atmosphere, music and a group warm up. Well marked route. Great finish process. Lady at the end announced by finish by name and said well done! GREAT post run snacks, really made it! Would run again.
