We recommend planning your travel to the event in advance, for Race Pack Collection in the days preceding, and/or on the morning of the event if collecting your pack and then returning on Race Day.
Runners and spectators can make use of our Park and Ride service on Race Day, which will offer shuttle buses to the Start and from the Finish.
We thoroughly recommend using the park & ride service if travelling to the city on race morning, to avoid any potential queues or traffic.
However, there are also a number of NCP car parks accessible on race day, a full list of which can be found here.
PARK AND RIDE IS NOW SOLD OUT
Southern Rail have planned to strike on Saturday 8 April, so this may effect your travel to the Event Village and Race Pack Collection. Please continue to check their website to find out if the strike goes ahead and whether you have to make alternative arrangements. If you do, please see details below coach services running from Central London offered by Zip Travel.
