The tenth and final race of the 2018 London Park Race series takes place on Tuesday 24 July 2018 on Barnes Common, southwest London. Like all races in the series, the race is suitable for beginners. Full leg cover is not necessary, running in a T-shirt, shorts and trainers will be fine – see below for more details.
The event centre will be at The Spencer at 237 Lower Richmond Road, Putney SW15 1HJ. Orienteers are asked to be respectful of other patrons of the pub, and must not get changed in the bar area.
The pub is just over ten minutes’ walk from Barnes station on the line from Waterloo via Clapham Junction, and there are lots of buses servicing the area – Transport for London is a great source of alternative routes.

Electronic timing will be used. If you do not have your own SI card, then you can hire one for the event at no charge. A penalty of £60 will be charged for hired SIACs that are lost or not returned, and such cards will be blacklisted.
The long course is not suitable for unaccompanied juniors as there will be road crossings. These will be timed out for competitors over 16, but cannot be used by unaccompanied juniors for insurance reasons.
