How to Get There

Event parking is available within the Aboretum. Please use the main entrance off Broadway North. There will be a drop off point within the car parking area. If you require disabled parking please follow the signs, disabled parking is next to the event site. The event site is on grass, however a path leads down to this that can be utilised in wet weather.

Course Details

The Walsall course 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 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Further Information

The majority of this course takes place on well maintained paths, however approximetly 0.5km is over grass. Participants may avoid this by taking a shortcut which will eliminate approximately 1km.
