The St Paul’s Walden Bury Run

Now in its 13th year, the St Paul’s Walden Bury Run takes place entirely within the picturesque grounds of The St Paul’s Walden Bury, attracting a full range of runners from the very fast elite, to first timers and fun runners. Many competitors return year after year.

This unique private course is a hidden gem that encounters beautiful historic Grade 1 gardens and covers green hills and undulating off-road terrain.

The race starts promptly at 11:30. The registration desk will be open from 10am and breakfast will be available for those who need an energy boost before they go!

There will be a 10k and 5k run as well as our family friendly 2k event which will start at 11.45am with medals for all the entrants.

All runners will receive a commemorative T-shirt, a medal and a goody bag as well as trophies for the winners. The race will be chip timed by Active Training World and the results will be available on-line as soon as you pass the finishing line. There is free car parking, toilet facilities and water stations.

We will also be hosting a family wellbeing day to coincide with the run so there will be plenty of food and fun for all the family to come down and cheer you on.

Food will be provided by Nick Male of the Loft, St Albans. Post race massages will be available from Halean Therapy and the Autism Angels ponies will be there to meet you so come here about their fantastic work with children living with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.
