The Watford 10k is one of our tougher routes, with a mixture of terrain and a variety of contrasts, that will give you a great sense of achievement when you cross the finish line! The first half follows tree-lined paths and grass avenues around Cassiobury Park. You’ll then cross over the Grand Union Canal to take in the beautiful scenery of Whippendell Woods, which includes tricky terrain and a few inclines to challenge you!
There will one water station on the course, at around 5km, and one at the finish line. Please bring your own bottle if you feel you will need more than this
The start line is in the main open field near the paddling pools.
The town centre car parks and Watford underground station are just a short walk away from the park. Buses such as 320, 321 and W1 serve Watford town centre.
The Cassiobury Park car park is closed all day and there tends to be a lot of congestion in the surrounding roads. Do plan your journey in advance and give yourself plenty of time to make sure you arrive an hour before the start time.
This course has large slopes and is through rugged woodland and is not suitable for wheelchair users
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you – there is a great atmosphere on the day! They can stroll around the stalls for face painting, refreshments and other family friendly activities.
