WIMBLEDON COMMON/PUTNEY VALE END, see Map: www.streetmap.com SW15 3PQ
This is the last match and we hope to maintain our current 3rd position in Division 2, which puts us in promotion position to Division 1! So as it is a Grand Priz race too, hope lots will turn out and enjoy the race and social afterwards!
The Race HQ is at the Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields (REMPF) pavilion on the A3 just north of the Robin Hood junction, SW15 3PQ. Those coming by car should note the Race HQ can only be reached on the southbound carriageway of the A3 – if travelling from south to north, proceed north at the Robin Hood junction, leave the A3 at Stag Lane (ASDA) and make a U turn.
There is limited car parking at Race HQ but cars can be parked in local streets in Vale Crescent (alongside the A3 on the left immediately after the Robin Hood footbridge). There is also parking at Robin Hood car park in Richmond Park (pedestrian access only so can only access via Kingston Gate) with short walk via Robin Hood Gate and over the footbridge. This could be a good option for anyone going to watch the men’s race later which is in Richmond Park.
Buses 85 (between Richmond and Kingston railway stations), 265 (Tolworth and Putney) and K3 (Esher and Roehampton) pass the Race HQ – the best bus stops are Robin Hood/ASDA.
The course starts on a grass playing field then goes into woodland of varying terrain (soft and harder woodland paths, sandy stretches and grassland) so any type of running shoe can be worn but obviously depends on the weather.
