When is it?

Where is it?
GlaxoSmithKline Cricket Ground, Park Road, Ware, SG12 0DP.
How can I get there?
Ware is just off the A10, which itself joins the M25 at junction 25. You can also walk from Ware train station (about 15 minutes) which links to Broxbourne, Tottenham Hale and Liverpool Street stations.
Is there any parking?
Yes, we are fortunate to have use of an on-site car park which will open at 7:45am; please try to car share wherever possible. Should you find the on-site car park is full, please use Chauncy School just a couple of minutes walk away.
What time does Race HQ open?
At 7.30am, although our team will still be setting up some elements of the village at that time.

Is there a time cut-off?
All runners will need to be finished by 12:30.
Will my race number be posted?
No. Race numbers will be available to collect the day before (Saturday 1st July) from the Ware Joggers stall at the Ware Festival. Alternatively, they can be picked up from race HQ on the day of the race. Further details will be included in the Runners Information which will be emailed a week before the race.
Are there toilets?
Yes, there will be lots of toilets at the Race HQ, although none are provided on the route.
Are there changing facilities?
Are there showers?
Where can I leave my bag?
The car park is right next to the start, although we also offer a manned bag drop from 8.00am.
My teenager would like to run, is that ok?
All entrants must be at least 17 years old age on the day of the event, 2nd July 2023.
Can I run with my dog?
No, sorry. We too love our four legged friends but don’t think it is practical with the numbers of participants involved.
Can I run with a buggy?
No, sorry, again this is not practical on the race route.
Can I wear headphones?
No. Parts of the course are on open road and you will need to listen to marshals’ instructions. Our insurance prohibits the use of in ear headphones, and you risk disqualification. Only bone conduction headphones may be worn.
What type of shoes should I wear?
The route is largely on paths and gravel, although there are some short sections on grass which can get muddy in wet weather. Road shoes will be fine.
Will I get the right size t-shirt?
We will try our very best, but t-shirts are ordered some time in advance of the event.
How much of the profits go to charity?
All the profits go to our chosen charity, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust. Ware Joggers do not make any money as a club from the event.
