The course is in Highbury Fields, Islington, and run on tarmac paths, although some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or temporary signs in place. Highbury Fields parkrun is an anti-clockwise 5-lap course, that goes round the bottom part of Highbury Fields (Highbury Place and Highbury Crescent).
