Located on the Victoria Embankment Recreation Ground the Race Village is right next to the start line and it's where the finish line is. Athletes come to drop off their baggage in the morning, soak up the entertainment before and after the race, meet friends and grab a bite to eat and drink. Here's an example of what you'll find on the day...
Runners are able to leave their baggage within the Baggage Tent prior to the race beginning. It will be clearly signed. Please expect to queue to drop/collect your baggage during peak times.
