Please note that Hyde Park now charges 20p for the use of the toilets, so please bring change with you. Royal Parks state that this charge covers the cleaning & maintenance costs of the facilities. Accessible toilets, which can be accessed using a radar key or through the attendant, will remain free of charge.
We expect the toilet block opposite the bandstand to be very busy on Saturday and there can be a very long queue. There is one toilet in the mens and another in the womens which can be accessed with a Radar key. There’s another toilet block next to Hyde Park Corner tube station and whilst this charges 50p and there are 2 flights of approx 10 stepsto get there it’s likely to be less busy.
Hyde Park Corner Underground Station
There is an NCP car park on Old Park Lane
Upon registration, you will be provided with your t-shirt and event programme. Runners will receive a running number and safety pins, chip timer, and will have a chance to give in your bag to be left in the marquee which you can collect after the run. Please note that forCrohns cannot accept any responsibility for items that are left in the cloakroom and unfortunately we do not have space for walkers to leave any belongings.
At registration, all participants will be asked to give your show a printout of their Justgiving page as proof of £20 minimum sponsorship.
The run/walk is one lap of a 10km circuit within the park and is a relatively flat route on pavement.It will be marked out with KM markers and we have marshalls to point you in the right direction across the route. Route Map to follow nearer the event (the one below is from 2016).
Lunch and live music will be provided for all and begin at approx 1.00pm.
Before this time there will be music, certificates will be handed out to all participants and there will be the Crohn’s Corner to peruse with valuable information for Crohn’s sufferers.
We can’t wait to see you all on 24th September (remember it’s back on a Sunday this year!) and in the build up and on the day don’t forget to tweet us your photos using #10kforCrohns or post them to Facebook using the same hashtag!
