The course

An amazing course through a piece of history, we are introducing a 10K for the first time this year. Hilly in places, moderately challenging and on path and grass, we set off from the very top of the park just by the Museum, before traversing the open fields - enjoying splendid views and journeying around the picturesque ornamental lake.

Meeting point

The meeting point is up by the museum entrance - be sure to bring friends and family too.

On the day

There’s a great atmosphere on the day with stalls to browse, face painting on hand, delicious food to sample plus some fun on stage entertainment.

Pop over to the Brioche Pasquier supporters' picnic area; it's filled with activities and goodies so be sure to get involved!

Map and directions

Public transport

To prevent congestion, we strongly recommend you use public transport or car share to your Race for Life event.

Please plan your route before your event to ensure you arrive on time. For help planning your route, visit or call:

Parking and travel information

Please arrive at least an hour before the start of your Race for Life event to avoid queuing.

Please use public transport or local car parks

There is no car parking onsite again this year and the traffic wardens are tough, so please do allow plenty of time for our prompt 11.00am start. St Albans Abbey station is just across the road from the Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre entrance and there are numerous bus routes operating around the site.
