The Watford route is largely flat and is set in the beautiful, family friendly Cassiobury Park. The route enjoys tree-lined paths and grass avenues with a mixture of terrains. There will be no water available on the 5k route, other than at the finish, so please bring your own bottle if you feel you will need it.
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. 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 challenging terrain with undulating grass paths and some wooded areas with exposed tree roots. It is mainly flat however, there is a large incline at the end of the course in the area between Cassiobury Park car park and Daisy's café. We advise that this non wheelchair accessible, please do consider the route and if you feel this was for you we would strongly recommend that you have assistance but encourage you to make a self-assessment on your ability to take on this course as it is one of our more challenging routes.
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.
