Mid Week League 2022 – Trent Park

Event Details

Event Description


Date: Thursday 30th June 2022
Start Time: 7.45 pm

Distance and Course: 10km (or as close as we can make it!), to be run on the roadways and paths of Trent Park (see the attached course map).

The course will start with a clockwise lap of the field to the south of Lime Avenue, before heading east on Lime Avenue. The course then continues past the Southgate Hockey Centre to start two laps of the woodland section in an anticlockwise direction (not as arrows show on map), before returning to Lime Avenue and on to the field for the finish. The course is undulating and may be wet in places depending on the weather conditions. It is however suitable throughout for normal road running shoes.

Location: Trent Park (see below for directions)

Changing: Changing & Shower facilities are available at Trent Park Running Club HQ: Southgate Hockey Centre Snakes Lane London EN4 0PS

Parking: Parking is available within Trent Park but is likely to be limited. Given the proximity of Trent Park to Cockfosters and Oakwood underground stations, the use of public transport is therefore strongly recommended. If you intend to drive, please car-share as much as possible.
Please note – there is NO parking available at Southgate Hockey Club due to the on-going development by Berkeley Homes. Please DO NOT attempt to
park there – you will be turned away.

Car parking is available at: The Cockfosters entrance to Trent Park Cockfoster Road London EN4 0JZ

It is essential that all cars leave here after the race, as this car park will shut at 9:30 pm.

Please note there have been roadworks outside the entrance to the Park recently and these may be ongoing on the evening of the race. If
this is the case, it will take longer to get into the Park. Please ensure you leave sufficient time to complete your journey and get to the start
in time!
Cars must not be parked on any of the roads within Trent Park, including Snakes Lane.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD DRIVERS PARK ON THE SURROUNDING ROADS. This is to comply with restrictions imposed by London Borough of Enfield. Anyone parking in local roads will risk
damaging our ability to hold future events at this venue. If car parks become full at Trent Park, runners will be told to use local car parks, for example at Cockfosters underground station.

Start & Finish: The start will be on the grass field near the Cockfosters Road car park, close to the pond and to ‘Go Ape’. This is approximately 5 mins walk from race HQ – Southgate Hockey Centre.
