How to Get There
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.
Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.
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 arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
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.
