The next Sunday League race is at Cassiobury Park, Watford. The race is on:

Sunday, 16 January.  Start 10:30.  Distance c.6 miles.

The start will be close to the Cha cafe.  It's arrowed on,196782&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map&searchp=ids&dn=891&ax=509851&ay=196782&lm=0

Travel: Watford Met Line tube station is a short walk from Cassiobury Park and Watford Junction (National Rail and Overground from Euston) is also within walking distance.  Parking is available either in the (small) park car park or on local roads.  Please park considerately. There are also car parks in the town centre, which are a modest walk away, and at Watford Met Line station in Cassiobury Park Avenue (WD18 7LE) where there are 70 spaces and the cost is £3

Temporary toilets will be available and there are flush toilets available near the Hub (Daisy's) cafe at the paddling pool complex.  The toilet facilities at the Cha cafe are for customers only.

We are again running in the shadow of Covid. Please do not travel if you have symptoms or have tested positive. Hand sanitising gels will be available near the temporary toilets.

In Cassiobury Park we have the benefit of a wide start, so please give each other a little space and courtesy as you line up awaiting the start.

The course will be the same as in recent years, out to the woods, 2 laps, then return back to finish adjacent to the start.  For those who haven't run here before, in terms of footwear, please be aware that there's a tarmac section over the "rustic" and canal bridges and the path beyond that has a firm trail type surface. 

All entries are taken on the day and entry is free.  The event is a good one for cross country newcomers.
