Chessington Running Wild

This charity run has something for everyone as there is a 10km, 5km or kids' challenge which gives everyone an exclusive chance to run within and and through the world famous Chessington World of Adventures. The closed to traffic, tarmac routes will weave around your favourite adventure park land in London.

Have fun, get fit, and raise money for Merlin's Magic Wand which organises magical days out for seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children. The Chessington Run is not only a race but also a great day out for the whole family.
