Who can take part?

Runners need to be EA registered to take part. We typically open the entries to Fulham Running Club first before opening to other London-based clubs.

We always need a huge amount of volunteers to help make this race a success. We need volunteers for a range of roles, including marshals, marshals on bikes, timekeepers, water station hosts, and photographers. Volunteers do not need to be EA-registered, a runner, or even a member of FRC (friends and family are welcome as volunteers).
