General Information


Your exclusive opportunity to race through the world famous Chessington World of Adventures. Starting at the Adventure Tree in the heart of the park, enjoy 2km, 5km or 10km of traffic-free running through the park's animal enclosures and past the theme park rides. The course is mostly on smooth tarmac, but there are some gravel sections and hills. Those wishing to run with buggies should enter the 2km.

The 2km is suitable for children aged 6+ to take part on their own. Parents are welcome to join in too for an additional +£3 per parent - just click “add a parent” during the child’s online registration. Children who are running independently will start at the front of the pack; children with accompanying parents and those with buggies will start at the back. Parents must be responsible for their children at all times.

Mini Athletics will provide free activities for kids aged 2+ years on race day. 

The theme park and animal enclosures will be fully open on race day - for which all participants will receive free entry. Friends and family can enjoy these attractions for just £25 - that’s 50% off the standard ticket price! Tickets will be available to purchase on the day.


You won't be sent anything in the post in advance of the event. Registration will open at 06:30am. Take a look at the start list boards, remember the number against your name, and then tell our friendly registration team and they will provide your race number and timing chip.
