Bit of an odd one, I guess, but I’ve got an event coming up which involves running up a grassy hill for approx 25 minutes.

Does anyone have any suggestions for where I could get some training in close to my home in South London?

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

isnt' greenwich park hilly or is it blackheath park or are they the same place, but where the London Marathon kicks off, that should be near you.

Welcome to RF by the way.

Greenwich Park has short steep hill that you could use for Hill reps, apart from that I'm not sure really. I live in SE London and struggle to get any hills in my training.

Thanks for the replies guys. It's lloking like running up one of the down escalators on the tube might be my best bet!

Quick tip... run in the opposite direction to the way the escalator is travelling for an extended hill rep :)

I'm sure the London commuters will appreciate that :d
