This one-lap course is measured at 10K with a full licence and chip timed. The course is off-road, mainly on track, private roads and playing fields. The course passes the Triumphal Arch, the Obelisk and the Temple of Venus. These are all 18th-century historical monuments in Garendon Park, private land between Shepshed and Loughborough.
This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the site of Garendon Park. This is the former site of a Cistercian Abbey, founded in 1133 and dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1536. It also includes Garendon Hall, which was reduced to rubble in June 1964.
Garendon Park is a large country park in the borough of Charnwood, Leicestershire, England. It is owned and managed by the Earl of Garendon, a title held by the Baring family since 1607. The park covers an area of just over 100 hectares and contains a variety of habitats, including parkland, woodland, grassland, ponds and canals. Several historic buildings are located within the grounds, including Garendon Hall, an 18th-century Grade I listed mansion, and the ruins of the 12th-century Garendon Abbey. A network of private footpaths and bridleways provides access to the park and the surrounding countryside. This is a rare opportunity to visit this unique area.
The Garendon 10K suits all abilities, from complete novices to experienced athletes. Plenty of marshals are around the course to cheer you on and ensure you stay safe. There will also be water stations and toilets around the course. The event is organised by Garendon 10K and is one of Leicestershire's most popular 10K races.
