Classes and Courses
Classes and Course combinations are set out in the tables below. You can run your age group, or run “up” – a longer course – by selecting the age class. (Unless you are under 16 when the insurance situation requires you to run course 9).
If you would like to run a course which is shorter than your age class (run “down”) that is OK. Please select the “Other” class on the course you wish to run down on. There are small prizes for the London City Race for the age class races. You are eligible if you run your own class or run “up”, but not if you run “down”.
