The races, which start and finish at Battersea Park Millennium Arena, are being organised by the council as part of its Love Parks Wandsworth Campaign.

Wandsworth has teamed up with local running club Clapham Chasers to deliver the runs at 11am on Sunday 30 June, 28 July and 25 August.

The 2km route can be walked or run by children and families, all ages and ability is welcome and there will be plenty of volunteers to cheer you along the way. The family fun race will start and finish at Battersea Park Millennium Arena, Battersea Park. Registration will begin at 10am, closing at 10.45am.

The Love Parks Wandsworth campaign includes events around the borough all summer to encourage everyone to get out and enjoy their favourite park.

Steffi Sutters, Cabinet Member Community Services and Open Spaces said; “I am delighted that we have been able to put on so many events recently as part of our Love Parks campaign and I am sure, as with all our other events, that these family runs being held over the summer will prove popular with our residents.”

There’s still time to get a free ticket for Sunday’s run.
