It is with deep regret that we have had to cancel the Watford 10k for 2016.

As you may know, Watford Council was awarded a large Lottery grant to undertake major renovations to Cassiobury Park and we looked to move the event to an alternative location just for 2016. The only viable option was Moor Park but unfortunately this involved negotiating with three different parties who were responsible for different parts of the route. It has proved impossible to secure a date for the event that suited all three parties. We are now in the process of contacting those people that have already registered to arrange full refunds.

We are bitterly disappointed that we have had to take this action as the Watford 10k is an important event in the local running calendar and it is also the biggest fundraising event for Watford Mencap, a local independent charity supporting local people with learning disabilities.

We have however been granted permission to hold our first Santa Dash in Cassiobury Park on Sunday 4 December 2016 - we are busy planning the event and more details will follow shortly.

In 2017 the Watford 10k will return to its normal date and venue so please put a date in your diary to join us at Cassiobury Park on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May 2017.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you at either the Santa Dash or the 2017 Watford 10k.
