Event Centre, Registration and Download at South Croydon Sports Club
Directions: The nearest “station” to the registration is the tram stop at Lloyd Park, easily accessible from East Croydon station (3 stops). From the west end of the tram stop walk west along Coombe Road to its junction with Lloyd Park Avenue. Turn left into Campden Road, the first road on the left after this junction of Lloyd Park Avenue. Turn first right into Spencer Road. Half way down Spencer Road there is a track on your right which goes across a disused railway line to some iron gates facing you, which is an entrance to the Sports Club. Proceed clockwise almost all the way round the building to the Sports Club entrance. The walking time from the tram stop is 6 minutes.
For those coming by car, there is free parking on Campden Road, Spencer Road (CR2 7EH) and neighbouring streets after 5pm. Please do not park in the car park at the Sports Club. Changing facilities are available at the Sports Club. The start is near the south west corner of the park, reached by retaking your route back to the junction of Lloyd Park Avenue and Coombe Road but you must come to registration before your run. It is about a 5 mins walk. Food is from a small menu including chicken and chips, scampi and chips and a range of burgers, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. Last food orders at 9pm.
