Course information

This course follows the lovely Willen Lake pathways, taking in grassland and woodland areas. There is plenty of variety and beautiful scenery to admire as you make your way around the course.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

The start and finish area is on the grass alongside the south lake, between the splash park, One4Six cafe and Premier Inn.

There will be a limited amount of free parking for participants in Newlands, across Brickhill Street - just a few minute's walk from the start area. Please follow the temporary yellow signage to this event car park and then the footpath signs which will lead you to the event site. When this car park fills up, there will be space to park in the Willen Lake car parks, but please be aware that normal parking charges will apply.

Please car share where possible and consider using public transport.

Parking

The route is mostly flat and on paths, so is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.  There are a couple of short inclines and declines on the far side of the north lake. There is also a grass path on the far side of the south lake which can be bypassed using the lakeside tarmac path. The start and finish area is on grass which could get boggy in the case of wet weather. There is blue badge parking in the Willen Lake car park which is no more than 100m from the start and finish.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run around the course!

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
