The route is a one lap, left-hand circuit on the roads surrounding Croydon. With the exception of the race leaders, you are generally required to run on the pavement. The route is run on normal roads, so you should be alert to potential hazards including road traffic, pedestrians, lamp posts, trees and their roots, bollards, parked cars, dogs, bus stops and people waiting there.
St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
