Course Details

The race starts at The Forum, before heading along the pavements of college lane. After two sweeping bends, you are on The Alban Way, one of the most popular running routes in Hatfield and St Albans. Next, you will turn right, then left onto Wilkins Green Lane. By the end of Wilkins Green Lane, you will have completed only 3 metres of climbing!

You will then cross The Alban Way and join Smallford Lane. Another sweeping corner takes you onto Sleapcross Gardens, before meandering onto the super-flat and super-straight A414 footpath. Take the left footpath onto Comet Way and then another left, to head back to the final mile, onto the Alban Way. Come back the way you came, into race HQ and you will have finished, probably in a personal best time too!

Add a medal insert to commemorate your time; whether it’s your first race or a new PB! Available to purchase for an additional £8.

Simply add MEDAL INSERT on your registration form and you’ll be sent the insert in the mail shortly after race day, for you to apply to your medal and display proudly!
