There are good parking facilities at the basketball arena close to the start line, and good public transport options also. The park is a bit removed from local housing however. There are no toilet facilities.
This is a mostly flat course around some playing fields. The course is made up of a strange mix of laps of different sections – slightly confusing so pay attention to the marshals. The M50 is right next to the park and is quite audible.
No café nearby so I had coffee on the way back.
At one point in the run, after the first lap you are at a height and get a view of the runners in front of you. It’s good to see how the guys up front are getting on and inspires you to go faster.
