Route information
Starting and finishing in Priory Park, the 10k and 5k routes take runners up and around Alexandra Palace and through the local streets of Haringey.
The 10k consists of two loops, whereas the 5k consists of just one. The 1-mile children's races follow a figure of 8 course contained completely within Priory Park. The course is fully marshalled with child safety and protection measures in place.
All routes will be clearly way-marked with arrows and distances markers. There will also be road closures in place and every route will have marshals stationed to guide you in the right direction as well as cheer you on.
