Race Packs

**ALL RACE PACKS ARE TO BE COLLECTED ON THE DAY**

All entries will be assigned a number. To collect your number you need to make your way down to the collection desks on Sunday morning. It will take around 15 minutes to collect your number. 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).

Collection Times:
8:00 – 9:00am

IMPORTANT: 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!

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.

The closest tube station to the event village is Clapham South (5 min walk) with Clapham Common (10 min walk) also in very close proximity. The event village is next to Mount Pond on Windmill Drive. Follow the running crowds and look for the signs

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.

The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.
