The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has been organising races in London since 1981. As a family of running enthusiasts we welcome competitive club runners, seasoned trailblazers, fitness lovers and novices. At all of our races you will experience a warm welcome, a supportive team of dedicated volunteers, efficient and professional race management and flat runner-friendly courses.

Event Profile: Our 10K course is 4 laps on traffic-free avenues inside Battersea Park. The race is UKA Certified accurate and manually timed to UKA Standards.

Location *NEW*: For 2018 our Race HQ has moved. Find us next to the cafe and opposite Millennium Arena running track on East Carriage Drive SW11 4NJ.

Inspiration: Our races focus on giving each runner a good experience: an opportunity to transcend their limits and achieve their personal goals. Our inspiration is Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007), the founder of our Marathon Team, who was not only an avid athlete and pioneer in the world of running and ultra-running races, but a teacher of meditation. He recognised the sport of running as a powerful way to develop concentration, confidence, determination, peace of mind and happiness.  

Refund Policy: We are unable to refund cancelled entries but runners are welcome to postpose their entry to a future Sri Chinmoy race of their choice as long as we are notified before race day. Contact us via email races@runandbecome.com
