BRIXTON 10K – Sunday 15th October
Start Time: 9:30am
Address: Brockwell Park, Norwood Rd, London SE24 0PA (next to the Lido)
All pre-entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the numbers desk between 8.30am – 9.10am. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number and drop your bag off. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt. If you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed. Your timing chip will also be in the envelope, this needs to be attached to your shoe as per the instructions on the back of the chip. Please make sure you keep your number on at all times during the race. At the finish you can dispose of your chip (we do not need to collect them back).
You will find instructions on the back of your chip for how to attach it to your shoe correctly (as below):
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, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
Portaloos will be provided at the Start/Finish area – strictly no use of the Lido toilets, please ensure you use the portaloos.
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and water at the finish. We have also ordered some bananas and flapjacks so you can grab a complimentary piece when you finish.
During the race
We will have marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course is 3 laps of the outskirts and inside the park. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.
In terms of spectating, this park could literally not be any better, the fields are open and every area of the park is accessible to see people running round. You can see the course map HERE.
Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.
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.
Please, wherever possible walk, jog, cycle or use public transport when attending the event. If you do have to drive, please consider car-sharing to reduce our impact on both the environment and other park users. Please also watch out for other park users when arriving and leaving.
By Car – There is plenty of parking on the roads around the park, there is a small car park next to the leisure centre and pool right next to the start, however, this will fill up quickly so it’s best to find spaces on the surrounding roads. The address is Brockwell Park Norwood Rd, London SE24 0PA
By Tube/Train – The park is within walking distance from North Dulwich, Loughborough Junction & Brixton stations but Herne Hill is the one nearest the park, less than 5 minutes walk.
By Foot - The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park. Look for the Brockwell Lido within the park and you will be able to spot us.
Use TFL to help plan your journey.
Things to note!
There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of people, cyclists and dogs. We have marshals and signage around the course but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
