Chip Timing



The Watford Santa Dash starts near the bandstand in Cassiobury Park which can most easily be accessed by a pedestrian entrance on the junction of Cassiobury Park Avenue and Shepherd's Road.

The start/finish will be near the bandstand. Please arrive at the Runner’s Village from around 9.30 am onwards so you have time to leave your bags at our baggage facility, buy a bacon butty or a hot drink and generally get ready for your event.
