The 2012 London J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge will use a pulsed start system based on estimated finish times. Your start wave will be denoted by the colour of your runner number. Follow the directional signage to your specific coloured start area on the day of the event. Click here for the start map.
Every participant will be provided with a timing chip to attach to the laces of their running shoes in order to record an official race time. Each runner’s time will be recorded from when they cross the start mat and end when they cross the finish line.
Once you cross the finish line you are required to hand in your chip at the chip collection points, which will be at prominent locations in the hospitality villages.
With the temporary addition of the Battersea Evolution in Hospitality Village One (British Genius Site), it will no longer be possible for runners to pass through Hospitality Village One to reach Hospitality Village Two on the grass area. Therefore, please pay particular attention to the below information in order to reach your Hospitality Village and the Start Funnels.

If you are arriving from the overland train stations you will be directed along Queenstown Road via the outside of the park to reach Chelsea Gate. Access will only be permitted to the indoor hospitality area within Battersea Evolution to those runners who show the appropriate accreditation.
