Ham Estate Park Race, Tuesday 17 May
The first race of the 2016 London Park Race series takes place on Tuesday 17 May 2016 on the Ham Estate, north of Kingston. Please note that the base for the race is on the Teddington side of the River Thames at The Anglers – the two sides are joined by a footbridge over the weir. 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.
