Route description
Route description

Run, jog or walk your way round the beautiful trails of Hampstead Heath in this wonderful event.

Runners will set off from the historic Bandstand and wind their way up to the peaks of the Heath, discovering woodland trails at the foot of English Heritage's Kenwood House along the way.

Having emerged at the top of the route, you will fly down the hill, crossing the amazing viaduct on the way, whilst catching stunning glimpses of the London Skyline. You will rejoin the main pathway for a brilliant flat finish next to the famous Parliament Hill athletics track.

The terrain will be mixed throughout and the routes will contain challenging climbs and some tough trail sections. The 5k lap will be completed twice by runners taking part in the 10k.

The 2k Fun Run will be entirely on tarmac, but will also include some challenging climbs.

All contestants will be started in appropriate waves, so whether you're an elite trail runner or a family with little ones, you will have a brilliant experience. All participants are chip-timed and will receive a unique souvenir medal as soon as they cross the finish line.

All proceeds from this event will benefit Jubilee Hall Trust's charity programmes to get more people engaging in physical activity.

It's a fun experience! It's quite nice to be able to do an organised run that isn't on a paved road!

A great chance to challenge yourself on the beautiful if rolling course on Hampstead Heath. Thoroughly enjoyed the event even if there was no prize for 1st. Not even an extra snack but would recommend it to others. Friendly fun event.
