You don't have to enter in advance - just bring your Serpie top, make sure your club membership is up to date and sign up on the planner to give us idea of how many people to expect. As usual if you are available to help with registrations/recording numbers that would be great – no experience necessary.

Parking

There is a pay & display car park along Chester Road on the Outer Circle and Inner Circle (open from 9am).

Public Transport

The nearest tube stations are Regents Park, Great Portland Street, Baker Street, St John’s Wood, Chalk Farm & Camden Town.

Food/Changing facilities

Post race refreshments and food will be provided by the host club. Changing, showers & toilet facilities are available in the Hub. There are also a limited number lockers to store your belongings.

Final race

Sunday 15th August – 5 mile race (hosted by Serpentine) – Battersea Park (9.30am) – volunteers required to marshal, host water stations, time keep etc. Please sign up on the planner as a helper and you will be contacted nearer the time. Also, if you could bring some food for the refreshment table it would be hugely appreciated – there have been some fantastic refreshments tables at the other races – we don’t want to let the side down.
