The race starts at The Forum, before heading along the pavements of college lane. After two sweeping bends, you are on The Alban Way, one of the most popular running routes in Hatfield and St Albans. Next, you will turn right, then left onto Wilkins Green Lane. By the end of Wilkins Green Lane, you will have completed only 3 metres of climbing!

You will then cross The Alban Way and join Smallford Lane. Another sweeping corner takes you onto Sleapcross Gardens, before meandering onto the super-flat and super-straight A414 footpath. Take the left footpath onto Comet Way and then another left, to head back to the final mile, onto the Alban Way. Come back the way you came, into race HQ and you will have finished, probably in a personal best time too!

The course is one lap of 5 miles. The route’s popularity is down to its reputation for fast times. It is incredibly flat and primarily free of pedestrians and traffic
