Last Friday of the Month 5k - Location

The race starts at 12.30pm, sharp. Meet by the Boat House from 12.00, noon.

If you already have your race number, there is no need for you to register separately on the day. Please wear your number clearly on the front of your race clothing. It must be clearly visible to officials at all times but removed once you have crossed the finish line.

Meeting point

The start and finish are at the Boat House in Hyde Park (on the northern side of the Serpentine lake). The nearest tube station is Hyde Park Corner and many bus routes pass nearby. See the TfL website for journey planning.


There are no changing or shower facilities. Participants should arrive in their running kit. There are public toilets (20p – payable only by card: no cash) close to the Bandstand, which is about 500m from the start. There are no toilets at the Boat House. 

Personal belongings may be left close to the start. Where this is necessary, please supply your own waterproof bag (e.g. a large plastic bag) suitably labelled. The surrounding area is open and is not secure. Therefore, articles are left at the individual’s own risk. We strongly recommend that you do not bring valuables.

Refreshments can be purchased from the Serpentine Bar and Kitchen, close to the start / finish area. Please note that we do not provide water, etc., at the race.
