The nearest tube station is Bermondsey station which is a short walk (8 mins) away.     


From London Bridge Station Bus 381 (towards Peckham), stopping at Jamaica Road Abbey Street (stop J)


London Bridge is the closest main line station and is a short walk (15 mins) away. Forthose travelling into other main line stations, I would strongly advise taking the tube. 


The nearest car park is an 8 minute walk away and located at:

Q-Park Tower Bridge

Use the postcode to direct you and please ensure you bring your own lock.

Important and useful details


We would love to see you in your Brain Research UK running vests so please bring them along. With the event in February the weather is never 100% predictable so please bring suitable clothes for rain or sun (it is a great opportunity to test out what running gear you’re comfortable wearing too).


The HQ has changing facilities.


There will be a member of the team at the HQ to look after bags if you’d like to leave them there whilst on the run. Please note though any items left are done so at your own risk. 


The HQ has tea and coffee facilities you may want to buy. This is a great chance to test out any gels you may want to use and get your hydration plan in place so please remember to bring water. 


There will be toilets at the HQ for our use.

First Aid

Whilst a basic first aid kit will be on site, we will not have a dedicated medical person on site for the event. 


Photos will be taken throughout the day for use in social media. If you’d prefer not to be in any photos please let me know.
