Watford Autumn 10K

HQ: Cassiobury Park, Watford
The Watford Autumn 10K is an annual event run by Watford Joggers. We are returning in November 2021 after no race in 2020.
The race is a great opportunity to test yourself, on a picturesque off-road route which includes the grassy trails of Cassiobury Park and the tracks of Whippendell Woods in full autumn spendor! The course is fully marshalled, accurately measured and a chip timing system is operated.
The race starts and finishes at the top of Cassiobury Park. A supervised bag drop area and toilet facilities are available at the start. Water will be provided at the finish. There will be a buff and "snap lock number fasteners" given to all those who complete the race.
There will be no refreshments at our clubhouse this year in 2021 due to the refurbishment works at West Herts Sports Club.
"Thank you, great race as always. Special thanks to the marshalls and I particularly liked the eco friendly cups instead of medals."
"Thank you and all your team for putting on another great event. It was so well organised, the marshals were super and the eco-cup was an inspired choice of memento."
"Absolutely brilliant organisation. Well done Watford Joggers"
"Thank you so much for a brilliant event. It was my second time doing your Autumn 10K. Am really pleased I came in 3 minutes faster. Once again it was extremely well organised. Check -in smooth and easy, plenty of pens on the tables. The Marshalls are all friendly and amazing. Loved the reusable coffee mug gift - a great idea. All makes such an enjoyable event to be part of.
Now to clean the mud of my running shoes!"
"Thanks for an amazing race day, even if conditions in Whippendell Woods were a little challenging, it all added to the fun."
"Thank you for your email, and for organising such a brilliantly run event! Everything went extremely smoothly and efficiently, the marshalls were all very friendly and encouraging, and the reusable cups at the end were an inspired idea. And we could not believe it when we walked back down the park after a coffee at the Hub that there was not a single sign left that the race had ever been there! Well done to all the team! We will definitely be back next year (old legs permitting!)"
"I really enjoyed my second Watford 10K - the organisation was excellent and the marshals were all very encouraging and supportive. Hope to be back next year."
"Great event - well organised, well marshalled and well measured! Well done Watford Joggers! PS - I’d be happy to run it and pay the same fee without the memento (coffee cup this year) but I might be in the minority!"
"Hi - please could you convey our thanks to the marshals. They were all so encouraging and positive throughout a really tough race. Still recovering....."
"Thank you for a great race today. We always love your race - well organised, friendly and a beautiful and challenging course! Hoping to see you all again next year."
"Despite the mud I enjoyed my first 10k. Thank you to all the Marshall's and to Watford Joggers for a wonderfully organised event."
"Hi , it's the 3rd year I have run this course and it's the best route I have done even though it was particularly muddy this year it just made it more interesting! The organisation is top notch and the the whole event has a great feel , thanks to all the organisers and marshals ,it's brilliant."
"Many thanks on a very well-organised event. Particularly on the steps you've taken to reduce the usage of single use plastic. Some more kilometre markers (or more visible ones) would be helpful please."
"Thanks for a great event yesterday. As always it was really enjoyable. The Marshalls were really friendly and made sure we knew where all the slippery patches were so we didn't fall. The re-usable cups were a fantastic idea. Definitely something I can use everyday and it was great that you had to use them to have water at the end of the race so the plastic waste was massively reduced. I also just wanted to say how lovely the buffet was this year. Although I'm not vegan, it was really nice to see that your club had taken the time to provide a good selection. There really was something for everyone whether they had run, spectated or volunteered.An a bsolutely fantastic event. I will definitely be back next year. Please pass on my thanks to everyone that was involved."
Absolutely Fantastic! These comments are testament to the amount of thought, care and time put in by many members of the club.
