Runners are limbering up for a 10k event through Fulham’s streets, starting at Eel Brook Common early on Sunday 15 November.
And thanks to their work with the council to make the day happen, organisers are offering readers a 25 per cent discount! But act fast because registration for the race closes on Monday 26 October.
The 10k gets underway at 9am in New King’s Road, with the one-mile family fun run starting from the same point at 9.15am. Eel Brook Common houses the race village.
The looping course takes in New King’s Road, Parsons Green, Burlington Road, Fulham Road and Munster Road, as well as a lap around Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge stadium, before finishing back at Eel Brook Common.
And to help celebrate the fantastic event, local businesses have jumped in on the action to offer race-goers an array of fantastic offers – have a look at the West Run London local partners web page.
“We’re delighted to host the race and I hope everyone will enjoy running along our beautiful roads. We hope that runners and spectators make the most of the area's family-friendly atmosphere and Fulham's many great places to eat and drink afterwards,” said Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Transport, Environment and Residents’ Services.
The one-mile family fun run is open to anyone over the age of four, with special encouragement being given to families running together. Participants will each get a medal and T-shirt.
Road closures will work on a rolling basis, and most streets are expected to reopen less than an hour after they have been closed to allow the runners through.
However, organisers have made efforts to minimise disruption to residents, and streets will reopen to normal traffic as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Places are limited and can be booked at the West Run London website with entries starting at £35 per person for the 10k and £10 per person for the Family Fun Run.
