Northaw Great Wood

Northaw always offers good running for beginners and experts alike. A Saturday Series event is in some ways even better than the larger Jack of Herts event last year:

  • Everything is much more compact, there’s no 1500m walk to/from the start/finish.
  • The infamous ‘garrotting’ fence is not in play.

A printable version of these details is available here.

Terrain Highly runnable deciduous woodland with contour detail.
Good path network so suitable for beginners upwards. Help is available – just ask.
Parking Northaw Great Wood Car Park EN6 4BQ. Space is very limited so please share transport if you can.
Overflow parking on service road parallel to the Ridgeway but please obey instructions of marshals and be careful not to restrict access for residents.
