The course is 5000m (5K) long. This has been accurately measured by us with a professional measuring wheel. The course is in Danson Park, Bexley, and run on a mixture of surfaces (including gravel and woodland paths) but the course is mainly on tarmac. Some sections of the course do accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or temporary signs in place. The course is situated in a picturesque setting with a section of it hugging the side of Danson lake. The majority of the course is flat but there are some slight undulations and gradient changes.
