An official race photographer will be inattendance around the course so make sure they catch you when you are looking your very best!
A Medical team will also be situated at the start area.
We will also have a pre race warm up around 10 minutes before the race start to warm up those tight muscles so you will be ready for the run.
The race starts and finishes at the glorious and famous Wimbledon Common next to the Rushmere Pond in SW19.

I can't believe
Well organised and lovely volunteers!
It would benefit from having slightly more marshals at some road junctions, given the roads aren’t closed.
The atmosphere was pretty dead throughout because it was a road race with no real obvious course for any onlookers. Start and end was good, and the shouty American!
