London City Race: Final Details and Start Times

Final details and start times are now available for both Friday in Crystal Palace and Saturday in Rotherhithe, along with start times for Sunday in Soho. These are available at the main London City Race event page. The final details contain important information about how to get into the event arenas without compromising yourself in the course areas. Please ensure that the details you have are “v3” for each of the days!

We recommend that you use public transport to get to the events, particularly on Saturday in Rotherhithe and Sunday in Soho:

  • Friday: Crystal Palace station, which is 20-30 minutes from London Bridge and London Victoria stations and also on the London Overground.
  • Saturday: Canada Water station, which is on the Jubilee underground line and also on the London Overground. There is a taped route north from the station to the event centre.
  • Sunday: Temple underground station, which is on the District and Circle underground lines. The Tour of Britain cycling race is taking place near there that afternoon so access via other routes may be restricted. Please check the map in the final details.

Transport for London’s Journey Planner is very useful in helping show the best routes on public transport around London. The easiest way to travel is to use a contactless credit/debit card, this will work on almost all trains, tubes, trams and buses in London. If you don’t have a contactless credit/debit card, an Oyster card can be purchased from the larger ticket machines at almost every tube station. Here’s the three tube/train stations to use for each of the three days, click for a larger version or see the full tube map on the TfL website:
