Course Details

We will have a lead bike and marshals all around the course as well as mile signs and arrows. The course is two big laps of the outskirts and inside the park. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park; be aware of walkers, dogs and cyclists.

10k route coming soon!

Please familiarise yourself with it before you start, there is a mixture of trail paths, well trodden pathway, and grass. The first 1.5 miles of the loop are rather hilly, flat for around 3.5 miles and then downhill for the final 1.5 miles. The course itself has a few long stretches where there may be lots of pedestrians and by then the race will have spread out, all you need to do is run straight, if you have to turn anywhere there WILL be signage and tape or/and marshals.

What's Included

– Themed medal,
– Chip timed results,
– Free official photos,
– FREE RunThrough Kit On The Run Socks (RRP. £6.00),
– Water and post race goodies!

How to Get There

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.

Great course if you don't mind a bit of mud and hills. Generally very well organised but one star of because of miscommunication around location of water stations (1 or 2k either way doesn't sound like much but when you are running dehydrated under the sun, trust me, you'll notice every stride!).

This was my very first race ever. I found everything well organised and fun. The marshalls and the staff were helpful and kind. Wimbledon Common is a beautiful environment for a race. I can only recommend!

This was my first half marathon! Considering I had nothing to compare it too, I can say the course itself was beautiful and I will be heading back just for a walk through the woods! Staff were great and super encouraging! Super cool medal and just all in all and awesome day! Can’t wait till the next!
