Fixture 1: Claybury, Woodford. 14th October 2017

Directions Set in beautiful parkland this venue is very popular. The various courses are predominately made of undulating paths of grass and usually hard soil in open areas for easy spectating in many locations. There is a small wooded section which is where the main climb of the venue is located. The whole course is suitable for spikes however trainers are a good option if the ground is hard which it tends to be at Claybury.

Fixture 5: Trent Park 10th February 2018

Directions Very undulating course on open rough lumpy park land. Liable to be very soft underfoot throughout.

Fixture No: 5
Date: 10 February 2018
Venue: Trent Country Park, Cockfosters, Enfield, London EN4 0JZ (please note; because of its size, Trent Park has several different post codes. The one given is the most appropriate and closest to the Cockfosters Road entrance to the Park).
Race Headquarters: Located just beyond “Go Ape”, on the left hand side (north) of Lime Avenue.
Changing facilities: There are no dedicated changing facilities but there are male and female WCs adjacent to the Cockfosters Road entrance car park.
Showers: No showers available.
Course location: The main start / finish area is adjacent to the race HQ.
PLEASE NOTE: In anticipation of a much larger field of runners, a separate start will be used for the Senior Men’s race only. This will be on the field to the right hand side (south) of Lime Avenue. This will enable a much wider and safer start. The start will be close to the old tennis courts and the run route will go west towards “Go Ape”, but then loop back by the pond and cross the avenue back onto the normal route. Please see course maps for details.
HQ to course walk time: less than a minute
Course Description: Very undulating course on open, rough, lumpy park land. Liable to be soft underfoot throughout. Some exposed tree roots in places, especially along woodland section of course, and three small wooden bridges that could be slippery. The course is likely to be very muddy and slippery in places so is not suitable for ordinary trainers. Spikes or trail shoes are recommended.
Public Transport: London Underground – Cockfosters station is the northern end of the Piccadilly Line. The station is 300 metres to the south of the Cockfosters Road entrance to Trent Park (approximately 5 minute walk). Turn right out of the station, walk north along Cockfosters Road, past the BP Garage (with M&S).
Use of public transport is strongly recommended due to the proximity of the underground station and limited car parking at Trent Park.
Parking: Parking is available within Trent Park but is likely to be very limited. Given the proximity of Trent Park to Cockfosters underground station, use of public transport is therefore strongly recommended. If you intend to drive, please car-share as much as possible.
The main car parking facility is at the Cockfosters Road entrance to Trent Park.
PLEASE NOTE: The private car park close to the Southgate Hockey Centre at the top of Snakes Lane is NOT available. Please do not attempt to park there.
Cars must not be parked on any of the roads within Trent Park.
Trent Park closes at sunset, which will be at approximately 17:00. The gate at the Cockfosters Road entrance is usually closed at this time, but drivers must take care to check the closing time which will be shown on the sign inside the main entrance.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD DRIVERS PARK ON THE SURROUNDING ROADS. Anyone parking in local roads will risk damaging our ability to hold future events at this venue.
