Race Venue

The event centre is Kingston University Students Union. Kingston University is easily accessible by public transport, with regular trains to either Surbiton or Kingston from Waterloo and Clapham Junction, and then either a 15 minute walk to the University or by taking one of many buses between Kingston and Surbiton with a short walk along Grove Crescent/Fassett Road on the east side of the campus to the assembly area.

Parking for a limited number of cars should be available adjacent to the event centre. If driving please approach the university from the east side on Grove Crescent/Fassett Road, rather than from Penrhyn Road.
