The run will take place at the junction of The Avenue (the South Circular) and Windmill Drive in Clapham Common.

It is easy to get to on foot from Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Road stations, and Clapham South and Clapham Common underground stations.

There is very limited parking, so please avoid driving. You can use CityMapper to help plan your journey.

The races


A multi-terrain 1k loop. Parents are able to run with their kids free of charge.


A mostly flat, multi-terrain 5k loop (run twice for those taking part in the 10k). It is clearly signposted so please try to stay on the course. There will be plenty of marshals to help you.

During the race

You will be given a timing chip when you check in on the day. This will register your start time as soon as you cross the start mat.

After the race

Your timing chip will register when you cross the finish line and all the results will be displayed on the day. We will also email it to you after the race. We will be there to congratulate you as you finish with a medal and goody bag, and you can return your timing chip (please try to remember to do this, there will be a £5 charge if you don’t return it!)


Filming and photography

We will be filming and taking photos during the event. If you don’t want to be featured, please let a member of National Literacy Trust staff know.
