Course information

The Walsall 10k course is a double lap that runs along the many paths through the Victorian part of the Park. The course then follows the perimeter of the Hatherton Lake, passing the Bandstand, Visitor Centre and the new play area. The course then heads to the fields at the back of the venue, before heading back to the finish. The course is mainly flat on tarmac paths but some sections toward the end are on grass. It’s a great course for all abilities and it has a lovely atmosphere.

Please arrive 30 to 45 mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time

Meeting point

The start line is within the main field of the Arboretum.

Parking

The majority of this course takes place on well maintained paths, however approximetly 0.5km is over grass on each lap. Participants may avoid this by taking a shortcut which will eliminate approximately 2km across the 10K course.
