Beckenham Place Park 2017
This popular and long standing series of short team based races is organised by members from various London clubs. These are generally from 3 to 4 miles in length and take place on weekday evenings from April to early September.
Events are suitable for all abilities and each team collects points depending on the placing of their runners, with the more runners that take part the better a team is likely to do as it affects the placing of other teams' runners. Awards are also given to the best placed runners throughout the season for the various age categories at the season-ender at Beckenham.
Races are the first Thursday of every month from April through to September. 2018 races are:
- April 5 Beckenham Place Park
- May 3 Victoria Park, Hackney
- June 7 Battersea Park (incorporating the club 5k championships) - note £2 cost
- July 5 Tottenham Marshes (NEW!!!) - see location map below
- August 2 Victoria Park, Hackney
- August 30 Beckenham Place Park
Other than the Battersea Park event which is on a UKA measured 5km circuit and requires the organisers to arrange permission with Wandsworth Council, all races are free to members of Dulwich Runners.

Tottenham Marshes Course - new for 2018
Northumberland Park is served by trains from Stratford (14 mins journey time at xx17 and xx47)
Tottenham Hale is served by very frequent trains from Liverpool Street (13 mins journey time every 2-11 minutes), plus the Victoria Line from Brixton in just under 30 minutes every 2 minutes. As a good warm-up it may be preferable to run along the towpath from Tottenham Hale station - head left briefly on the A503 towards Walthamstow and then head down to the River Lee Navigation by the Lee Valley Walk signpost.
