BATTERSEA PARK 5K & 10K – SATURDAY 15TH FEBRUARY 2020
Address: Battersea Park Bandstand, SW11 4NJ
**As you may have heard, storm Dennis is on its way. The current forecasts are being kind to us and it looks like we will miss it. It will be windy and you may notice we don’t have as many structures up as normal but the race is going ahead. We are looking forward to seeing you all there!**
5k – 9:30am
10k – 9:35am
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 on Saturday morning. 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).
When you collect your race packs, please take a couple of minutes to fill out the brief runner Information form which can be found printed on the back of your bib. This will help us greatly in case of an emergency!
You will find instructions on the back of your chip for how to attach it to your shoe correctly (as below):

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.
Battersea Park itself has two sets of toilets, they are a little walk from the Start/Finish so ensure you take this into account. There will also be portaloos close to the bandstand that you are welcome to use.
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 bananas for when you finish
