Bag storage:

There will be a supervised baggage drop area at the event. This is free to use but please note that we cannot take any responsibility for loss of items or possessions, so please refrain from storing valuables in this area. Please tear off the baggage tag from the race number and attach it to your bag before setting off for the race.


A number of toilets are available at the event (although expect some queues at these). Changing rooms are also available to use.

Medical Team:

We will have the Response Group Medical Team in attendance and we will have medical cyclists cycling with the runners to enhance response time in case of injury. If you need assistance during the run, please alert the marshals en route, who will be able to communicate back to the medics.


The start of the race is at 09:00. Competitors should allow time for parking, collecting race numbers, using the toilets, and dropping off baggage. There will also be a warm up scheduled 10 minutes before the start. Runners will then be called to the start line according to their predicted race time.

Chip timing:

The timing chips are to be put on your shoes. Please do not tamper with the chip.

All runners are required to collect their race number from the Race Collections desks situated next to the start line. Please go to the queue with your surname. Please note the desk opens from 07:45 and closes at 08:45.

Runners need to make sure they cross over the chip timing mat at the start of the race and NOT sidestep the mat, otherwise you will not get a recorded finish time!

Water stops:

There will be a water stop at around the halfway stage. Please ensure you drink the water and then dispose of the receptacle(s) in the bins provided or drop them close to the water stations for the marshals to pick up.

Finish line:

As you cross the finish line, please make sure you cross over the chip timing mat, which will automatically record your official time against your race number.

Remember to smile as the photographers will be situated at the finish line! Please keep moving across the finish area, where you will be given your well-deserved medal and lots
of drinks and refreshments to rehydrate.

Race photography:

We will have official race photographers at the event, who will be taking photos at different stages of the route. The photographs will be available to buy via the photographer’s website.

Results and prize ceremony:

Results will be available after you cross the finish line. The official results will be posted on the website a few hours after the event.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three Male & Female runners, and there will also be Vets Prizes for V40, V50 & V60 Male and Female.

All finishers will be awarded a finishers medal!

Race rules:

The route is on public roads. Runners are advised to keep on the pavements at all times.
Please don’t try and impede other runners and road users. Just remember these are public roads so please do respect ALL road users and traffic.

4 out of 5 stars

  • Atmosphere
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Nice course and great organisation.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Really cozy event. The organisers seem to care about the runners having a good time and the flat course makes for a good finish time.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Good challenge for someone reasonably unfit but not necessarily fit. I pushed myself the whole way.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Whilst flat, I didn't find this a fast course as no roads were closed, and as this is London, other non-race runners, walkers, general pedestrians, and the local rowing club (carrying their boats in front of on coming runners, when they could waited a few seconds for a safe gap to move across the road) had no consideration of the fact, nor did they seem to care that you were taking part in a race. Coming from out of London, I'm not used to having to fight for position, as normally I have as much right to be using paths/roads as anyone else. Clearly I wasn't good enough to use the local roads! Due to many listening to music, there was sadly a lack of atmosphere and camaraderie during the race. You could definitely tell you were in London!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Really fantastically organised; excellent officials who were really encouraging and enthusiastic; and an all-round great atmosphere. The course is very flat and the water stations are nice and frequent. A super race!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Running along the high street was not great and wasn't clearly marked on the course map.
