There are changing facilities, showers and toilets at race HQ. There is limited car parking within the club grounds, but there is plenty of free on-road parking on the surrounding roads. Cycle parking is available within the car park.
Race HQ is approximately 5 minutes’ walk from Beckenham Junction station (trains from Victoria/Orpington, Croydon Tramlink and local buses), 10 minutes from both New Beckenham (trains from Hayes/Charing Cross) and Ravensbourne Stations (trains from Orpington). Local buses serve stops located on Foxgrove and nearby Southend Road.
Race Number Collection
Your race number will be ready to collect from race HQ on the day between 09:30 and 10:30.
Before the race
Runners are welcome to use the club grounds at race HQ to warm up. Approximately 20 minutes before the start time a horn will sound, entrants should make their way to the start (see map below). It is approximately 800 metres from race HQ, so please leave in plenty of time.
Please note that the last post will be played and there will be a silence observed before the race; the start will therefore be at 11:02. The start and finish is in the South West corner of the park, just down from the Mansion House. There is a gate to access the park at the end of Beckenham Place Park Road.
Finish / After the race
A memento will be awarded to all finishers and there will be tea and cake for all runners back at race HQ (as long as stocks last!). Other refreshments will be available for purchase from the club bar after 12 noon.
Runner Instructions for all entrants are now available with full details of the event.
