The Course

The 1 mile course starts and finishes in the same place this year and loops around Old Deer Park. The 500m race (for our Reception - Year 2) will be a smaller version of this loop. For the safety of our kids, parents are NOT permitted inside the course. If you want to run with your child please keep outside the course parameter.

The Finish

Parents are NOT allowed in this area. Children will be handed back to parents at the end of the finishing shoot once the parent is identified. We ask parents to assist our staff by being patient during this time. No child will be permitted to leave the Safe Zone without their parent/guardian to collect them.


The Kids’ Mile, created after the 2012 Olympics with the help of NIKE UK, is part of our Olympic Legacy. Our little runners will be supported by TEAM GB Olympians on the day and with the help of our partner NIKE, every child will be chip timed and receive the best NIKE race t-shirt and cool medal. The race starts in Old Deer Park with live music cheering on our stars of the future.


On Sunday 17th September, 2017 in Old Deer Park, we are adding a family funrun. Click here for more details.
