The Swindon 10k route starts and finishes in the field adjacent to the play area and meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The route then heads out into the surroundings grounds looping around back to the finish area.
The 10km route is a double lap of the 5km route.
Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. There will be a water refill station 1/2 around the course and a ScottishPower water refill station will be available to use at the finish.
Please arrive 30 to 45 mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel. This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always correspond with digital tracking apps and watches.
We will be providing free of charge parking on grass for all participants and spectators within Lydiard Park in a specific area. Please enter the car park via the gate off of Hook Street. You can use the free WhatThreeWords app and enter ///twins.solve.envisage to find the exact location. Note that is not the usual entrance you would use for Lydiard Park. Continue past the Lydiard Park signposted entrance for 300m, where you will see car parking signage and a steward to direct you into the car park.
Normal parking charges will apply to the rest of Lydiard Park, so please ensure you follow the temporary event signage to ensure you do not have to pay.
To access this event parking, please follow signs for Lydiard Park (via Hook Street), not signs for Lydiard House. Parking is not permitted on or via Hay Lane by Lydiard House.

Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
The course starts on grass then moves to trails around the park before heading over the river and up a short, sharp incline into the forest. Here there is some uneven ground and roots to be mindful of. The rest of the route is on grass and trails around the park.
The short incline is not wheelchair accessible, however, there is an alternative route which follows the edge of the river. This will be signposted on the day.
With those considerations, the course is wheelchair accessible but with assistance.
The start/finish area is also on grass and is approximately 75m from the main Lydiard Park car park, where there is blue badge parking and appropriate drop off points.
