Driving - There is no car park on site. If you park on the roads around the common, you will need to check the pay machines and watch out for permit areas.
Tube - The start is roughly 5 minutes walk from either Clapham Common Tube or Clapham South Tube, we will be 100m east of the bandstand. Follow the running crowds and look for the signs.
Train - The common is around 1 mile from Clapham Junction. So if you want to get the overground, you can either take a stroll (warm up?) or take the 35, 37 or 345 bus.
By Foot - The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.
Please, wherever possible walk, jog, run, 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. You can use TFL to help plan your journey.
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, all you have to do show you number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and water at the finish alongside other post race goodies!
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 - be aware of people walking, dogs & bikes.
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.
Things to note!
There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of people, dogs & cyclists. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We do not recommend you use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you. The nature of a park/common is that there are people doing whatever they so please, we can have no control over stray dogs or people running the opposite direction etc so please be aware.
