From the organizer

Organizer's website

Our Monday night races from May-August. These are 5K races on a fast, flat course, the perfect opportunity to test your speedwork or try out your first race. Monday evening races all start at 7pm, giving you time to leave work, put your running shoes on and finish your day in style.

The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has been organising races in London since 1981. As a family of running enthusiasts we welcome competitive club runners, seasoned trailblazers, fitness lovers and novices. At all of our races you will experience a warm welcome, a supportive team of dedicated volunteers, efficient and professional race management and flat runner-friendly courses.

Our races focus on giving each runner a good experience, an opportunity to transcend their limits and achieve their personal goals. Our inspiration is Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007), the founder of our Marathon Team, who was not only an avid athlete and pioneer in the world of running and ultra-running races, but a teacher of meditation. He recognised the sport of running as a powerful way to develop concentration, confidence, determination, peace of mind and happiness.

    Well organised, friendly and a good mix of club runners and newbies on a nice flat course, in a park. What more could you want? See you again soon.

    Some really strong athletes competing even though it’s a small event. Battersea park is a beautiful setting - it’s 2 laps of it.
  • Did the Rapid Rabbit 5K in 2019

    A great little course and very well organised. Great that you can turn up 10 mins before the start straight from work and have a run around.....competitive or just for fun!
  • Did the Rapid Rabbit 5K in 2019

    Such a fun, low-key evening race around Battersea Park. Great organisation and no faff. Definitely one for PBs!
  • Did the Rapid Rabbit 5K in 2019

    Great local race, very friendly marshals and a good clean registration process. Excellent value for money and some really impressive athletes turning out. There was a couple of km markers missing (from memory 2k and 3k), which wouldn't have been a problem had I not forgotten my watch!
  • Did the Rapid Rabbit 5K in 2019

    Fun and friendly race. Quick and easy registration. Lovely 2-lap route around Battersea Park. I'll definitely be back!
