Getting there from the Tube/Train station will need careful planning. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time!! You can get an 85 or a 265 bus to the start of the race, you will need to get off at the Roehampton Vale Campus (Kingston University Roehampton Campus). Use TFL to help plan your journey.

The race will be starting/finishing on Richard Evans Memorial Playing Fields. The pavilion was owned by London Broncos Rugby Club so look out for their signs, there is a big for sale/rent sign out in front now. Be alert for it as it’s a sharp left off the A3. Once you are in the car park you will be able to see the start and finish.

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.
