HYDE PARK 5k & 10k – SATURDAY 22nd APRIL – 9:30AM START
Hyde Park Bandstand, Hyde Park, London Hyde Park, W2 2UH
All pre-entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the registration 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).
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.
Hyde Park has two sets of Male and Female toilets one near to the bandstand which is virtually on the course and near the start/finish and another set next to The Old Police House. We recommend arriving early if you plan to use the toilets.
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. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.
