Crystal Palace 5k, 10k & Half
Come and run a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon with us in Crystal Palace Park, in the South-East London suburb of Crystal Palace. The Park is situated on the Norwood Ridge, offering views of Central London, Greenwich and the North Downs. The undulating route in this beautiful park is the perfect opportunity for a fun morning run, even passing a few dinosaurs along the way!
