!!! IMPORTANT DATE CHANGE !!!
In 2016 the Watford 10k run will be on Sunday May 1st in the Moor Park area, starting and ending at Merchant Taylors School Northwood HA6 2HT. (We have had to change the date due to operational reasons).
Unfortunately, our usual venue in Cassiobury Park, Watford is unavailable due to major construction work due to take place in the park. We have therefore had to change the time, date and venue in 2016 and we will return to the usual format in Cassiobury Park in 2017.
The race, organised by Watford Mencap will, once again, be looking to attract runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to running.
In addition to the main 10k race, there is a timed 3k race for younger athletes as well as a 1k children’s run.
The race attracts over 1,000 participants and usually sells out – so an early entry is advised.
13:00 3k Junior Race, minimum age 11
13:30 1k Fun Run, no minimum age
14:00 Watford 10k, minimum age 15 ** NOTE START TIME **
Prizes/trophies in 10k for 1st, 2nd & 3rd Male and Female; 1st in age categories from Junior to Vet 8

All proceeds from the Watford 10k will go to Watford Mencap, a local charity whose Children’s Centre provides school clubs, play schemes, nursery groups, a youth club and toy library for over 150 children with learning disabilities in the Watford and South West Herts area.
