Where could you finish?

We’ll work out your time based on past results, elevation and terrain.

Course Details

The Northampton route meanders through Abington Park covering all areas of the scenic course. The route is primarily on grass with some short sections on pathways. There are a number of gradual inclines and declines throughout the course.

Unfortunately the route is not wheelchair or pushchair accessible due to the nature of the terrain.

Raceday Logistics

The start line is opposite the car park. Please follow the flags and the directions provided by the stewards.


Please car share where possible due to the large number of participants attending. Alternatively, use public transport if you can. The entrance to the car park for participants is just off Abington Crescent.


Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls we’ll have, including refreshments and a bouncy castle.

  • Did the 5K in 2019

    It was a great atmosphere and one to do with kids. Not a 5k it was 4.6k (the 10k was about 7.6k). Very busy, and lots of walkers creating lots of bottlenecks in places where the course is narrow. However, great atmosphere, my kids all loved it, and a beautiful park.
