A hidden jewel, nestled amidst the M4, M40 & M25, yet a million miles away from the concrete jungle - a real metropolitan oasis.
No dodging traffic or tripping over pavements, this course is interesting and quick; a mixture of tree-lined trails and wide, traffic-free roads, taking in the beautiful Stockley Country Park. Great spectator-friendly start and finish, with hot and cold refreshments available, so bring the family. Masses of free, on-site parking. Easily accessible – close to the M4, M40, M25 and Heathrow, with good rail links.
A beginner-friendly race, yet equally good for experienced runners to challenge their PB.
