The Osterley Park Summer 10K is back for 2017, following the great success of the event in June 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The Osterley Park Summer and Winter 10K are organised by Ealing Half Marathon CIC, the team behind the award-winning Ealing Half Marathon, in partnership with The National Trust.
Taking place on Saturday 17th June 2017, the Osterley Park Summer 10K is set in the grounds of the beautiful National Trust Park which is one of the largest open spaces in West London. Suitable for all abilities, it is a fast and friendly race that is perfect for those seeking a 10K PB or those looking for a starting challenge.
Entries are now open for this event on the race website.
The flat route takes in lots of beautiful scenery and includes a loop of the private gardens, and the race is the official recommended race for Alice’s Youth Memorial Fund.
Once described by Horace Walpole as ‘the palace of palaces’, Osterley was created in the late 18th century by architect and designer Robert Adam for the Child family to entertain and impress their friends and clients. The organisers say that this is “a short hop from central London by tube, but a world apart”and that “The course creates a challenging yet interesting mix of trail, road and park.”
Participants will be running down the tree-lined drive, past the grazing Charolais cattle, before running through the surrounding private gardens, park and farmland in one of the last surviving country estates in London.
