Route information
The route starts and finishes at Sandilands and follows a two lap route around the streets of Croydon. There will be an initial shorter loop followed by two long loops, so runners need not be surprised as they see the finish after mile 1.
Please not that the roads will not be closed. On the main roads of the course you are required to run on the pavements. The race crosses a section of the Tram Link line and while we will have stewards on duty, it is your responsibility to be alert of any trams. At Oaks Road, should the red lights show you must stop.

Can I run with a dog?
UK Athletics rules prohibit dogs in races. However, for some of the more ‘fun’ events, it may be possible subject to certain conditions - please check with us beforehand. Our Canicross races are, of course, dog-friendly!
Can I run with a buggy?
Yes buggies are permitted at our events but some events are not suitable due to course conditions. However, please note that if you choose to run with a buggy this is at your own risk and the occupant of the buggy is not covered by UKA insurance. If you have a query on a particular event please contact us.
How are the events timed?
All of our events are timed either by the traditional manual method using a stopwatch and clipboard, or by using chip timing. We will endeavor to have results available at the race and results are normally uploaded to our website shortly after the event has finished.
Will my race number be posted out to me?
For most of our events, your race number will be posted out to you. If you have entered one of our summer evening 5k events or a mid-week winter event, your race number will be waiting to collect on the night. You will receive an email upon entry that will state whether your number is sent out to you or not.
What should I do if I have not received my race number and timing chip in advance of the race?
For most events, your race number and timing chip will be posted out to you around 10 days before race day. If you do not receive your race pack before race day, please come to the registration desk at the race HQ and we will reissue your race number.If you have entered within 10 days of the event or you live overseas, your race number will be waiting for you to collect on the morning of the race and you will receive your race instructions by email.For some races, your number and timing chip will not be posted in advance and will be available to collect on the day, but we will email you before race day to let you know if this is the case.

How do I attach my race number?
Please attach your race number to the front of your running top or vest using safety pins or clips, securing it on all four corners. Please don’t attach your number to the back of your shirt as it is difficult for our timekeepers and marshals to identify you.
Can I wear headphones?
Under UK Athletics rules headphones are no longer permitted in events that take place on roads open to traffic and runners risk disqualification if spotted wearing headphones with the exception of bone conducting headphones. Heaphones are permitted for events taking place 'off road' or closed to traffic however you must be able to hear marshal's instructions and other runners around you.
