The next Metropolitan League race is at Stanborough Park, off Stanborough Road, Welwyn Garden City.
Course Location: North Side Stanborough Park. The Course Map can be downloaded here: Welwyn Course Map 101118
Minibus: We will be running a minibus to this event. Please contact team managers for a place on the bus. The minibus will leave at 10:30am prompt from Stockdove Way.
Public Transport: Welwyn Garden City Station (Main Line) 1¼ mile
Parking: There is a fairly large car park on the north side of the Park, adjacent to the course. There is a very large car park on the south side of the Park, 5 minutes’ walk to the course. As early arrivers will undoubtedly fill the car park on the north side, you may be advised to go straight to the one on the south side.
- Access to both of these car parks is only permitted from the adjacent side of the carriageway. If you cannot find a space on the north side, to get to the south side you must drive to the roundabout at the top of the hill and return on the other side of the carriageway.
- There is a footpath under the road bridge, providing traffic-free access between the south side and the north side of the Park.
- These car parks are ‘Pay & Display’. You must display a ticket or you may incur a fine. We have negotiated a reduced rate of £1.50.
- YOU MUST OBEY THE TRAFFIC SIGNS
Driving directions from major roads: Leave the A1(M) at Junction 4, (after the Hatfield Tunnel). At the roundabout take the second exit to A414/A6129. At the next roundabout take the first exit A6129. At the bottom of the dual carriageway take the second exit out of the roundabout. The entrance to the car park on the north side is on your left after around 100m. The entrance to the car park on the south side is more or less opposite but you cannot gain access from the left side of the carriageway. Note: The postcode shown on the Met League web site will take you to the town centre, not the course.
