Parking
It is strongly encouraged to car share where possible to ensure everyone can get a parking space.
Although there is a fair amount of parking at the Ashton Playing Fields, they will get full, probably by around 8 to 8:15am. After this time marshals at the gate will direct you to park outside in one of the many residential side roads. Please therefore allow plenty of time to arrive and park.
By Train
If travelling by train, Central line Woodford Station is the closest train station to the event site. When exiting, walk 600m down Snakes Lane East, turn left and walk beneath the M11 bridge. From here, the gate is on the left.
By Bus
The following transport lines have routes that pass near the event site: 123, 275, W14.

Always a great event, well organised and challenging. With so many fancy events now with flashy medals and finisher tshirts it’s always nice to support a local event arranged by runners for runners!

I cannot say enough good things about the marshalls. They were so encouraging the whole way and I got a really good vibe from everyone which helped me massively as it was my first half marathon! There were water points at exactly the right places. The organisation was top notch and the whole atmosphere and vibe was just perfect. We even had locals not part of the event clapping and cheering us on!

A great local event on an undulating course in and around Woodford in East London. Looks like it keeps getting hit by the commercial juggernauts of the the big events so really hope it can continue. I'll certainly be back next time if it does. It's not flat, but the down's make up for the up's and I personally PB'd on it.

Definitely a race which really challenges the strength in your legs. I am a fairly beginner run and with a lot of hills I found it fairly challenging. Other than that a very well run event.

A great warm up for my Marathon later on in the year. Some challenging moments and good to get the knees used to a full road run
