The race starts at 10:00am on Saturday 12 October 2019, but get there earlier if you want to take part in the pre-event activities (including a warm-up). All activities run until 2:00pm.
Public transport is your best bet for easy access to Hyde Park. The closest Tube stations are Hyde Park Corner and Knightsbridge (both on the Piccadilly line). Plenty of bus routes serve the park - the best options are those that cover the south and east entrances. South entrance: 2, 36, 137, 148, 159 and 436. East entrance: 8,15, 23, 30, 38 and 274.
We recommend you use public transport instead of driving, but if you need to come by car, pay and display parking is available on West Carriage Drive and in car parks at either end of Serpentine Bridge.
There will be portaloos available for families and participants but no baby-changing facilities at the event itself. However, you can find these facilities in all disabled toilets throughout the park - the closest is just across from the bandstand.
The course is accessible to everyone, whether you’re moving by foot or on wheels. The route will take you through Hyde Park on its paved pathways. Bear in mind that some of the post-race entertainment will take place on grass.
There will be plenty of refreshments on site throughout the day. During the race, water will be readily available.
Why not take part as a team and get some friendly competition going? The event takes place in October so wear an extra layer under your race T-shirt if you think you’ll be cold. Feel free to bring your pup along too - the more the merrier!
Adult registration to the race is £18-25 (depending on when you sign up) and it is free for under 16s. Kids go free but still need to be registered so that they receive a race pack. You may race as a team or individually. Children aged 15 and under can only be added to a team by a registered adult (16+ years) and require consent from a parent or guardian.
