Maryon Park is a new area for the London Park Race stretching from the River Thames at the Thames Barrier up into the wooded valleys and former pits that cut into the Greenwich Escarpment below Charlton village. There is landscaped parkland surrounding the Barrier, hilly, semi-open woodland in Maryon Park and Maryon Wilson Park and a small region of complex urban detail. The race is suitable for shorts and trainers and courses are planned to allow no significant advantage by running through undergrowth.
The event centre is at the riverside Anchor and Hope on the Thames Path. We are awaiting details about food for after the race, so watch this space! The pub is an 800m walk from Charlton overground station with connections through Greenwich to London Bridge. It is 2.3km along the Thames Path from North Greenwich underground on the Jubilee line, or a ride on the 472 or 486 bus to Anchor & Hope Lane. Parking is unrestricted nearby on Riverside Walk and Anchor & Hope Lane.
