THE Wheathampstead 10K is expecting a record number of runners to take to the new improved course this year.
Thanks to the improvement in footpaths on the route the event is attracting increasing interest from beyond the county boundaries and the course record could well come under threat.
Numbers are strictly limited to 800 and registered runners are already outstripping the demand for last year. Book before Sunday, May 11, and the fee for the 10K is £10 and £3 for the 2K. On the day, prices are £15 for the 10K and £4 for the 2K.
The runs take place on Sunday, May 18. The 2K starts at 10am and the 10K starts at 11am. This year organisers are asking everyone to take extreme care when driving in the village as the Rotary Cycle Ride will also be passing through and the monthly Farmers Market will be taking place.
Runners are strongly advised to allow plenty of time for parking and getting to the race. Extra parking away from the village centre has been organised at the Development Centre (Butterfield Road), St Albans School for Girls (Codicote Road) and Wheathampstead Place (off the High Street) to ensure the safety of participants in all events. Most of Marford Road will be coned off and there is no parking in the Memorial Hall, on Sheepcote Lane or in East Lane car park.
With a children's fun day and plenty of refreshments, once again Wheathampstead will be putting on a vibrant community event for everyone to share in.
