RACE INFORMATION

CRYSTAL PALACE 5K & 10K – Sunday 11th November 2018

Address: Crystal Palace, Thicket Road, London SE19 2GA (Please see the start location below)

Start Time – 10am

Race Numbers

SEE ENTRY LIST HERE

All pre-entries will be assigned a number. To collect them you need to make your way down to the numbers desk between 8:50am – 9:45am. 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):

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,  show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.

Toilets

There will be portaloos within the event village. You can see a map of the park HERE

Refreshments

There will be water provided on every lap of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish.

A message from Pursu:
From the starting line we set out to create more than just another sports nutrition brand. Our mission is to inspire everyone to get involved in sports and provide them with the best quality whole food ingredients without compromise.  The Pursu range of vegan endurance bars are made from natural ingredients with absolutely no added sugar. They’re cold pressed and deliciously moist which makes them easy to eat, even while training.
Sustainability is at the core of our ethos and we’re mindful of looking after our wonderful environment. We use bio-based home compostable packaging that will break down into compost and return to nature and we’re proud to be plastic free.

During the race

We will have marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course is on the roads/paths in the park and will be 1 lap 5k and 2 laps 10k. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park. See the course map below:

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.
