Parking on race day

The recent wet weather means that we have reduced parking facilities in the school grounds.

There is a reasonable amount of parking in the different car parks and roads in the school grounds but please park carefully and considerately to maximise this space.

Additional parking is available at Merchant Taylors Prep School in Sandy Lodge Road (Postcode: WD3 1LW). If you are approaching the event from Rickmansworth, we recommend you check parking here first. It is only a short walk (0.7 miles) to Merchant Taylors’ School from here.

Considerate and careful parking in North Approach, South Approach and Sandy Lodge Lane has been permitted by the Residents Association of the private Moor Park Estate. Cars may be parked for a maximum of two hours. Please do not park on grass verges or block residents’ driveways as this will seriously jeopardise the future of this event.

Please remember that many roads will be closed from 3.00pm for the 10k race.

If you are able to share cars with friends or use public transport, you will help ease the congestion. Moor Park Underground Station is a short walk from Merchant Taylors’ School.

Races will start on time. We have had a record number of children enter the junior events so please make sure you arrive in plenty of time. If you are able to share cars with friends or use public transport, that will ease the pressure on the car parks.

We are extremely grateful to Merchant Taylors’ School, Merchant Taylors’ Preparatory School and Moor Park (1958) Ltd for their support in helping us implement our contingency plans. It’s the first time in sixteen years that the weather has played such a big role in our planning and their understanding and assistance are much appreciated.
