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 over the Race Weekend.

Baggage Tent

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.


There will be a number of catering units serving a selection of tasty food Including fresh hot panines, burgers, fish and chips, carvery, hot & cold drinks & confectionary.

Charity Partners

Our Charity Partners will be in the Race Village on event day. Why not stop by to find out more about these great causes.


You'll find bands dotted around to make sure the event goes off with a bang. If you're lucky you may just bump in to Robin Hood himself!

Help Desk

The Help Desk is manned by Goldline Events staff to deal with any issues you might have on the day, including replacement race pack collection and Elite athlete queries. It is also the place to go if you have lost something or someone. So if you have any issues or questions just stop by and we will be glad to help.

Our partner Impact Physio and their massage team will be available to help with everything from pre-race body MOT to a relaxing post-race massage. Stop by to help relieve those weary legs. The services provided by Impact Physio are free but they do request a charitable donation.
