Last Friday of the Month 5k - Location

Meeting point

The race start, finish and meeting point 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 wearing their running kit. There are public toilets (20p) 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.

Please note that we do not provide water, etc., at the race.  However, there is a catering kiosk close to the start/finish area and the lakeside Serpentine Bar and Kitchen is also nearby.
