Trail Challenge Half Marathon – key information

Please note the following:

The club house is in the grounds of Dysart Arms pub.  Can you please not use the car park by the club house as it is reserved for pub clients (who will be going for their Sunday lunches).  If you come by car, can you please park in one of the nearby streets.

The suggested way to get the Ranelagh Harriers Club House by using public transport is by going by train or tube to Richmond Station and then taking the bus 65 (stand E) towards Kingston.  Look out for Dysart Arms which is opposite Petersham Gate into Richmond Park.

The club house has changing rooms and will be manned at all times.

Food and snacks being provided by one of the members of Ranelagh Harriers.  Please pay directly the lady who is providing the food.

You do not need any special equipment as we are providing the maps and electronic micro-chips.  Bring your normal running kit to run in – trainers and shorts are fine.

Please contact the event organiser Mark Vyvyan-Robinson ( for further information.

See you on the 23rd September!
