Run/Walk Details

The run/walk start and finish will be pitch side by the main Tooting and Mitcham Football stand so please do bring along spectators to cheer you on.

The course takes you out of the Tooting and Mitcham Community Sports Club ground across the Bishopsford road and into Ravensbury Park along the Wandle river for 2 laps of the park. There will be a brief section of the course along the pavements of Morden Road and Wandle Road.

The route will take you past the Ravensbury Park play area so if you are running/walking as a family you can have a quick play stop.

Water station to refresh and recharge will be on route (you will pass this twice).

Marshalls will be stationed along the route at key points from start to finish along with clear signage and there will be a First Aid point at the start/finish. In addition to the First Aid point there will be a first aider circulating the route on a cycle bike.

At the end of the race you will be greeted by the Home-Start Merton team and a football stand filled with your family and friends.

There will be a medal for all finishers and a goody bag filled with some snacks so you can recharge.
