Wandsworth Council

Wandsworth has one of the highest number of council-owned parks and open spaces in inner London. And we believe that these are huge assets to the people of Wandsworth – not just the showcase parks, but the smaller and less obvious green spaces too, which can be a haven for peace and tranquillity.

This summer, as part of Love Parks, we encouraged everyone to get out and enjoy their favourite park. By using and celebrating your local park, you are helping us to protect it for future generations.

Additional Information:

Suitable for Ages 0 to 105.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

All finishers will receive a certificate and a medal, and be given a recorded race time.

The course is approximately 2km on a marshalled route, please wear comfortable clothing and trainers as the route is on a path.

Children can run on their own as long as a parent or guardian is present to register them and collect. Dogs won’t be allowed to run the route but can come and support with other family members.

Get the whole family involved in something fun and active!
