Greenwich Means Time To Run

Greenwich Park 10k actionWhether you want to check your time at the Prime Meridian Line or observe your form as you pass the Royal Observatory the Greenwich Park Winter 10K Series will provide many unique opportunities. Dates have just been announced for three spectacular races in London’s oldest Royal Park.

Greenwich Park dates back to Roman times and the former hunting ground was first enclosed in 1433. From the statue of General Wolfe the elevated section offers unrivalled views across the River Thames to St Paul’s Cathedral. The park is home to a small herd of deer and rises to 45 metres at its highest point.

The hilly terrain will present a fine challenge for several hundred runners at the first Greenwich Park Winter Series 10K on Sunday, 10 December. The series will conclude with two more races on 8 January and 12 February, 2017.

Keeping things simple seems to be a successful motto for the eponymous race organiser, The Race Organiser! The same team that are behind the popular Royal Parks Winter 10K Series and QEOP Olympic Park 10K races are now promoting this new race series in the beautiful surroundings of Greenwich Park.

Each event will feature the same chip-timed 10k course, consisting of two 5k laps. Runners will receive a goody bag and medals. Competitors can also expect supportive marshals, water stations, toilets, baggage area and a friendly atmosphere, where the aim is to help people get fit before and after an indulgent festive period!

You can enter each race for just £16 or £18 unaffiliated. Alternatively, you can enter all three races for £45/£50 and bag yourself a technical T-shirt in the process.
