The course starts in Beckenham Place Park and is undulating.  The race is open to all Serpies aged 11 or over but parents of younger members should take note that the course will NOT be marshalled and there will be NO first aid presence.

Generally, the first Serpie to arrive collects our numbers, hands them out and completes the Entry Form. There is no entry fee as the club pays this as one of your membership benefits.  The races usually attract about 150-200 runners of all standards.  If possible, please run in a Serpie top.


The Race HQ is no more than 10 minutes walk from Beckenham Junction station. There is a frequent service from Victoria. Journey time about 20 minutes. Trains also run from London Bridge to New Beckenham and Ravensbourne with journey time of c.40 minutes.  Please check for options.

Please contact me if you have any questions about taking part.
