Did the 10km in 2020
This was a pleasant 10K. Battersea Park is flat as a pancake, and running along wide paths/roads makes it easy to go for a PB. The organisers delayed the 10K start time slightly to allow the 5K runners to start-- this should have been built into the advertised start time instead-- but otherwise the event was organised well. I especially appreciate that it didn't feel suffocatingly crowded at the start! Note that faster 10K runners will have a lot of 5K runners to pass, but the wide paths make this pretty easy.… read more

Route description
Route description

The flat course will take you around Battersea Park's wide pathways and allow participants to indulge in the epic scenery this park has to offer. Both the start and finish line will be at the Park's iconic Bandstand.

This is a lapped course, with 5km athletes completing it twice and 10km athletes doing it four times. There will be course marshals throughout and distances will be clearly marked.
