Parking is limited; however, you can arrange your own parking in a number of places. If you want to park right next to the race there are parking spaces more or less on the course. It’s £1.20 per hour (30p per 15 minutes, 4 hour maximum stay).

From central London catch a train from Charing Cross, Waterloo (East), London Bridge or Cannon Street. Journey time from Charing Cross to Greenwich is about 15 minutes. Trains only run to or from Charing Cross and Waterloo (East) during morning and evening rush hours. At other times take a train to London Bridge and change to one starting from Cannon Street. About six trains per hour run between London Bridge and Greenwich at off-peak times.

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

We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. There is a baggage label attached to your number that you can tear off and attach to your bag. To collect, all you have to do is hand over your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.

Greenwich Park itself has two sets of toilets they are a little walk from the Start/Finish so we recommend you take this into account, we have opened them up so there will be no charge for using them.

Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.

  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Large number of runners, 500, means great atmosphere. Traffic free. But hills and no prizes. Expensive too.
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    Really well organized, bags rea easy to pick it back. Nice Park where running, challenging with ups and downs.
