Two Counties Jingle Bell Runs routes

The course starts and finishes on the Merchant Taylors' athletics track. After a loop of the running track, the route then takes you out into the school's picturesque grounds which overlap both Hertfordshire and Middlesex.

This is a mixed terrain course - beginning on track surface before hitting the surrounding paths and grassland. Runners will get the opportunity to take in the striking landscape and beautiful lakes of this rural cross-county school.

Each race will be a lapped course, with marshals on-site and clear distance marking every KM.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    My first 10k on a very, very wet and muddy course, its flat and would be lovely when dry but quite tough cross country style after heavy rain. Well organised with friendly Marshalls.
