CHASE THE SUN BRIXTON 5k & 10k – WEDNESDAY 17TH APRIL 2019
Race address: Brockwell Park, Norwood Rd, London SE24 0PA (next to the Lido)
5k – 7:00pm
10k – 7:02pm
To collect your race pack, make your way down to the numbers desk between 6.00pm – 6.45pm. 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):
When you receive 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, and there are pens available at the registration desks
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 end of each lap (approximately 3k, 6k and 9k), and water at the finish. There will also be bananas & flapjacks waiting for you at the finish.

Please, wherever possible walk, jog, 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.
By Car – There is plenty of parking on the roads around the park, there is a small car park next to the leisure centre and pool right next to the start, however, this will fill up quickly so it’s best to find spaces on the surrounding roads. The address is Brockwell Park Norwood Rd, London SE24 0PA
By Tube/Train – The park is within walking distance from North Dulwich, Loughborough Junction & Brixton stations but Herne Hill is the one nearest the park, less than 5 minutes walk.
By Foot – The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park. Look for the Brockwell Lido within the park and you will be able to spot us.
