Run 5km or 10km Through the Stadium Park

Do you have the perseverance of a god? Then if so, why not challenge yourself to a Herculean race around Wimbledon Park Stadium?

The Hercules Wimbledon Athletics Club was founded in 1967, and provides training and competition for men, women, and children of all abilities. Each year they host two races at Wimbledon Park Stadium, where they are based.

First up is the Perseverance 5km Dash. The exact date it yet to be announced, but will happen some time in August. Members can sign-up for 7, while non-members can enter for 9 by registering online. You can also register on the day for 10. Children between 11-16 years old can also enter for 4 advance or 5 on the day. Spaces are limited to five hundred, so advance booking is recommended.

There is also the option to enter as a team. There are two types of teams: Open and Surrey County. To be eligible for the latter, you must have lived in Surrey for at least nine months, and never have represented any other county in a racing event.

Prizes will be in the form of a 50, 40, and 30 voucher for first, second, and third place, respectively.

On the 6th October, the even more hardcore can enter the Perseverance 10km Road Race, which starts at 9.30am. It will be the 53rd annual event, and is one of the oldest races in England. Registration is 17, with a 2 discount for members, and 10% of the entry fee going towards The Wimbledon Guild. There 300 worth of voucher to be distributed amongst the winners.
