The Bushy Spring 10K & 5K routes


This is a mixed-terrain course that takes athletes across hard track, tarmac and some grass. The route weaves throughout the park, taking in the Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club and the Oval Club as well as a number of picturesque woods and lakes on show.

This is a fast and flat race - great for that end of season PB. The course will be clearly marked out and friendly marshals will be on-site to deal with any issues.

This is a lapped course, with the 5KM race completing it once and the 10KM runners doing it twice.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    I love running at bushy park. The lets do this team are really friendly and everything is all ready to go.
  • Did the 5K in 2019

    Rubbish bag area as no staff look after the bags why bag labels?!!////////////////////////////
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Super well organised, with race number and timing chip sent through the post meaning no need to queue at venue.Course was marked clearly and Marshall's did a terrific job and were very encouraging.Have to say the medal was the best I have seen!Thanks. Looking forward to next event.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    I love running in bushy park, when these runs are on I always try and do them. The people are great and its very well organised. The only thing about the run is at the beginning its a bit tight and bumpy. But its all good fun
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    The only complaint I have is that the race start was very hard to find given the directions provided and where the bus dropped me off. Both myself and another runner spent 25 minutes searching for the place and ended up starting the race 10 minutes late. A single sign on the outside of the park (to the south) would have solved this problem. Other than that... amazing staff and amazing atmosphere as usual :)
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Good, flat course, a bit congested at the start though. Having different start times for the 5k and 10k races might help.
