We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible.

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 on each lap of the race, as well as at the finish alongside bananas and of course flapjacks!
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. The course is 2 laps for the 5k and 4 laps for the 10k.
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, Hyde Park is London busiest outdoor area so you will encounter pedestrians/dogs – please be aware. 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 recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
