The Course

The course has been accurately measured and has a certificate of course accuracy. It is a flat, one-lap course over public roads, with a small inner loop of 1.5k at the 2.5 k point. All road crossings will be marshalled and there are no right turns on the route.

No dogs, accompanying vehicles or cycles are allowed on the course. We regret the course is not suitable for wheelchairs, prams or pushchairs. The course will be marked at each kilometre. Please be aware that potholes have appeared in various places on the course. Where possible these have been highlighted with bright paint. Please take extra care this year.

All competitors should try to arrive by 8am to allow time for parking, collecting your race packs (Race Number and Timing Chip), warming up and lining up. The start is in Knowle Green. The race will start promptly at 9am. Listen for the race marshals instructions to guide you to the start at the appropriate time.

It is vital that you are realistic about your anticipated finish time and line up in the appropriate place. Pace setters are available to assist with your target completion of the event. Slower runners should move to the back of the group. This will ensure maximum enjoyment for all entrants.

Please pay attention to the pre-race instructions. These are for the benefit of all runners, and will help guide you through the course and keep you safe. This advice is for your own safety and that of other road users

You must be certain to run over the matting at the start line to ensure that your chip is registered.


We are happy to provide experienced runners as race pacers for 45, 50, 55, 60, and 70 minutes. Please bear in mind that pacers are human and whilst they will endeavour to arrive at or just before their allotted times it is no guarantee. Pacers are asked to keep an even pace throughout the race.

Water Station

A water station will be provided around the 5.5k point. There will also be drinks available at the finish. Staines 10K are pleased to announce that we are using fully bio-degradable cups. Please discard in the bins provided after use.


The finish is on the footway in Knowle Green opposite the Council Offices. Follow the instructions of the race officials at the finish. Do not let non-competing friends or relatives run with you. This is especially important in the finish area as extra non-numbered runners coming through the finish line and exit funnels can affect the results. Make sure that your race number is displayed vertically and not folded when finishing.

The timing chip attached to your shoe will record your race time as you cross the line. Make certain that you run over the matting in the finish funnel, this will ensure that your chip is registered. Once you have crossed the finish line, don't stop, keep moving to the end of the funnels; stay in the exact order in which you have finished. Please don't get ahead of anyone in the finish funnels. This is very important for accurate timing and placing. If someone gets in front of you, politely ask them to go back, they may not only get your hard earned place and time, but may distort the race positions for everyone.

On completion of the race, runners are to make their way to the Leisure Centre, to collect their commemorative T-Shirt and finisher's medal.
