The race starts at 09:55am prompt from the start on Singlers Marsh. Both the 10km and the 20.20km routes are undulating scenic road courses and fully marshalled. The ‘Junior Dash’ is also well marshalled and on Singler’s Marsh itself. You must obey the instructions of the marshals at all times. Please bear in mind that although these races take place in summer, conditions may well be wet and slippery due to poor weather and entrants are also reminded to be vigilant to avoid pot holes. You must follow the signs around the entire course. Runners taking shortcuts will be disqualified.

The 20.20km route will be two laps, going through Linces Farm and this section is multi terrain and unsuitable for prams.

No iPods/MP3s or equivalent, including bone conducting headphones are allowed. You will be running on roads shared with pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, and you must adhere to the marshals’ instructions. Failure to comply with this instruction will result in immediate disqualification.

Race Headquarters are at Singlers Marsh, Welwyn. Runners are asked to be mindful of local residents and to park in the designated area off Fulling Mill Lane (see parking map), which is offered for a donation to the Scouts who are co-ordinating this facility. A supervised baggage storage area will be provided. Storage will be at the owner’s risk.
