We are starting right next to Sheen Gate. The nearest postcode we have for here is SW14 8BJ. This is not the exact postcode but should give you a close enough location with a sat nav. Sheen Lane is the street that takes you directly in to the park.
Car - There is car parking here with toilets situated on the right immediately as you enter the Park. Please note that the carpark has limited space as this is open to the public.
Train - Richmond mainline station is about 30-40 minutes walk and Mortlake is about a 20 minute walk away.
Getting there from the Tube/Train station will need careful planning. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time!!
By foot - The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available.
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. Simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, just hand over your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your belongings.
Toilets are available at Richmond Park at the Sheen Gate entrance. If you think you're going to be using the loos then please give yourself plenty of time.
There will be water provided at 5k, 10k, 15k and at the finish. We have also ordered plenty of bananas/flapjacks for your post race recovery.
