The Mitre 10k Runners Information

On behalf of the Bishops Stortford High School, thank you for signing up for our event and helping us to raise vital funds.  We are very proud of our school and your support is genuinely appreciated.

We very much look forward to greeting you on Sunday at our sports ground “Jobbers Wood” located in a country lane at SG10 6FB. As you drive into the ground you will be greeted by our marshals who will direct you where to park.

Roads are closed for the race from 11am so please be here by 10.30am to ensure that you can park safely and receive your running number and chip in good time.

Please Note that vehicle access from Jobbers Wood is closed until 12.30pm. You will not be able to exit the car park until this time. If you wish to leave early, please park elsewhere and walk / cycle to the venue.
