Event: Run in the Dark London – 5k or 10k run
Location: Battersea Park, London
Date: 13th November 2019
Please note that the start time is 8.00pm. It is imperative that the event starts on time so please give yourself plenty of time to get to the start line. Please ensure you are at the start line by 7.45pm.
Participants not wearing their run number will not be permitted entry to the start area.
A map of the run route map is available on our website: www.runinthedark.org/london. Please familiarise yourself with the Start/Bag Drop/Toilet areas and always bear in mind that you are running at night and there may be trip hazards on the route.
If you need to change distance on the day, don’t worry. Simply run your chosen distance on the night and the chip timing system will recognise your distance. 5k is 2 loops, and 10k is 4 loops.
Walkers are only permitted on the 5k route; you may not walk the 10k route.
A bag drop facility will be available at the boules area. Please bear in mind that if you deposit any baggage in this area it is entirely at your own risk. Do not leave any valuables in this area.
ONLY ONE BAG PER PERSON WILL BE ACCEPTED IN THE BAG DROP, due to space restrictons.
No bags will be accepted after 7.40pm.
Please put your detachable baggage label (from the bottom of your run number) in your bag before leaving it. The Bag Drop facility is only for storage of bags. Unfortunately, it is not a changing facility.
An Information Desk will be located at the boules area, if you have any queries.
TOILETS AND FIRST AID
Toilets are available at the boules area. First Aid will be located near the start line.
No water will be provided on the route due to safety concerns of low visibility. Please bring water with you if you require it on route. Water will be provided at the finish line, and we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottles.
USE OF EARPHONES
The organisers strongly advise against the use of earphones or any device while participating in Run in the Dark, as it may restrict your hearing of important instructions and communication with other participants.
