Overview

A Lovely point-to-point race from Cowley Recreation Ground, Uxbridge along the Grand Union Canal to Cassiobury Park, Watford. A flat, scenic, unusual, multi-terrain course. Traffic-free apart from one minor road crossing. On entering this event you should receive a booking confirmation email within 10 minutes. If you fail to do so, please check your spam/junk folder. Further event details will be communicated by email (to the address provided during registration) in the week leading up to the race. This is the second of our two Grand Union Canal races in 2019, the first taking place on Sunday 7 April 2019. Whilst we welcome runners who only wish to participate in a single race, please note that discounted entry for both races is available here (prior to the first race in the series only).

This is a fab race. Stunning route along the canal, lovely volunteers and great atmosphere. The only thing they could improve is the start, it’s really hard to stand around in the cold from the time when the bus drops you off.
