Hit the new year running, or get motivated by cheering on others at the Start Fitness Serpentine Running Club’s annual New Year’s Day 10k run and 3K fun run. The longer race is held under UK Athletics Rules with small prizes including vouchers for the first three past the finish line. Fun run participants will receive medals.
There are places available to non-members and there is a fee to sign up (£18 affiliated, £20 unaffiliated, £5 fun run), but spectating is free. Runners will make their way through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Those wishing to take part should note there are no changing facilities, so you’ll need to be race-ready on arrival.
The 10K race starts at 11 am, while the 3k starts around 12 pm. Prizes are usually handed out around 12:20 pm.Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
