Welcome to Battersea Park, your 1km Loop begins near the running track (top right)
The Battersea 1km Loop begins with the athletics track pictured here behind you
The public map on right of picture is the 1km start point, as you tunr 180 degrees to run the opposite direction
As you turn 180 degrees from public map this is your long straight at start of 1km
As you run along the initial 1km straight take note of the vibrantly painted red park benches
After appox 350m you will come to band stand round about, you are taking the first left (just visible in pic)
This is the first left from the band stand , get ready after just 75m to take another first left again
And this brown hedge marks your hard left, take it nice wide line to maintain momentum
After 50m you will run under these trees and approach the Lake pump house
750m done and here is the Lake pagoda, get ready for a right turn as you turn for the home straight
Here is your right turn taking you back onto initial starting straight (be aware boy in red may not be there when you run)
When you see this straight again you know yoru 1km is almost over
Instead of stopping at your original start point, you need to turn right for final 50m
And the gate by the red boating hut represents 1km exactky
And just in case you not 100% sure LGN use a surveyors wheel - here is proof of 1,000m excatly!
Happy running from all the team at LGN and we look forward to seeing our Run Club members from TMW have their 1km improvement results posted here very soon.
