Hampton Court Half Marathon

Park & Ride

The Park and Ride scheme is put in place to make arrival at the race simple and stress free. Car drivers are advised to park at Sandown Park Race course in Esher which is 1.8 miles from the start at Giggs Hill Green. Runners can then use our special Park & Ride bus service to travel to and from the start. Buses will be leaving Sandown Park at regular intervals starting from 06:30am. The total journey time to the race start from Sandown Park will take approx 15 minutes.

Please use the Park and Ride facility if you are planning to travel by Car. Do not park on local roads as many of these form part of the course, and we want to avoid unnecessary disruption to local residents.
