Serpie Capital Ring Runs: Stage 2 Reminder - Woolwich to Beckenham on Sunday 20th June - last chance to sign up!

Hello Serpies,

Stage 2 of the Serpie Capital Ring Runs starts at Woolwich and takes us through south east London to Beckenham on Sunday 20th June. So far about 25 Serpies have signed up. Would you like to join us on our next trail running adventure?


Quick recap: what are the Serpie Capital Ring Runs?

Serpies at the Thames with City Airport in the background, stage 1


For anyone who missed stage 1, the Ring Runs are a series of Serpentine-organised trail runs around the Capital Ring - a 78-mile route around the suburban greenery of London.

This is an opportunity to explore outer London, socialise with other Serpies (a really good opportunity for our new members) and practice those navigation skills. Running is mainly on long distance footpaths, with plenty of sign posts and never far from public transport.


Stage 2 - Woolwich to Beckenham

Our second Capital Ring adventure will start from Woolwich and take us through south east London to Beckenham. It is a little longer than stage one at 14 miles and consists of sections 1, 2 and half of section 3 in the Transport for London schedule. You will see the Thames Barrier and some good views from Woolwich Common, run past Severndroog Castle and Eltham Palace, then on through Grove Park to Beckenham.TfL recommends the Go Jauntly app to help with navigation.


Sign up before noon on Friday 18th June

Please follow this link to sign up page. This is so we can gather contact tracing information, have some ideas about grouping, and have an idea about numbers for the pub. In particular, let us know if you are happy to be a ‘group leader’ (who will make sure we don’t lose anyone and also will act as emergency contact), or if you have any specific needs. 

The weather looks cooler on Sunday than it has been these last few days, with possibly a little light rain in the afternoon. Check the forecast before you set off - but it won’t stop us! Those who have signed up will be contacted by email in the afternoon or evening of Friday 18th June. We will advise meeting time and location, as well as the pub we are going to.

Any questions, including if you have signed up but have not heard from us by Saturday morning - please email Hans Ho, Participation Rep. 


Looking forward to you joining us!


The Serpie Capital Ring Runs Team
