Baggage

We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, all you have to do show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.

Refreshments

There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and water at the finish alongside your fruit and flapjack!

During the race

We will have marshals all around the course as well as KM signs and arrows. It will be 1 lap for the 5k and 2 lap for the 10k. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park - be aware of people walking, dogs and bikes.

Results

Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.

Pictures

We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on Facebook after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.

Things to note!

There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of people, dogs and cyclists. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We do not recommend you use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.

Lots of fun, but a bit wet and muddy!

I did this race with my sister and the atmosphere was very festive! As it was all through the common it was really lovely and scenic. I did the 10 K which meant it was a double lap of the 5K race, which was good because you could easily gage how far you had left on your second lap. It had rained a lot the day before so unfortunately a lot of the path had big muddy puddles. This created a bit of a hold up at the start, but by the end you just had to run through them! Bring some extra dry socks and shoes for this one!

Badly organised

Bad weather meant the course was very muddy, which can’t be helped, but it was REALLY bad and I think it should have been rescheduled. We were running in roads with moving and parked cars and on footpaths with walkers. It didn’t seem like any part of the park had been closed to accommodate a lot of people running a race. The start was not staggered so we were running in a crowd for a whole 5k of the 10k race we did. It just seemed really badly organised. I trained for 2 months and achieved my slowest pace ever during the race because of the conditions so I was really disappointed. Won’t be signing up to this again.

A well organised event

Had a great time in the winter run at Wimbledon. Well planned and good organisation.
