Stockley Park Running Club
Initially formed on 14th March 2018, the Stockley Park Running Club meet twice a week – every Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime.
The group is formed of a variety of skill levels, from complete beginners to keen enthusiasts. Everyone is welcome and, best of all, it’s completely free!
We predominantly run around the Stockley Park Golf Course at whatever pace suits the group. Meeting outside the Stockley Park Management Centre, our usual courses consist of:
Short Course (3km)
Keeping to the East side of the park, the course takes us around the back of 2 and 3 The Square, along the edge of the golf course towards the bridge over the A408, then back past the Arena and Golf Club to the Stockley Park Management Centre.
Intermediate Course (4.5km)
The intermediate course follows the same route as the short, but with roughly 1.5km added on as we cross over the bridge into the West side of the park and run ‘the loop’ before heading back across the bridge.
Long Course (5.5km)
The long course is the same as the intermediate, but with an extra loop thrown in. Where the intermediate course starts heading back towards the bridge, the long course turns off and runs ‘the extra loop’ around the bottom part of the golf course, adding around another 1km to the journey.
Whichever route you decide upon, you’ll be in for varied running conditions. Whilst the courses follow public footpaths, you’ll experience a multitude of running surfaces: gravel, tarmac, mud, grass, sand and the occasional puddle or two. The course does offer some changes in gradient – there are some gradual hills, along with some tougher ones if you like a challenge. If you’re a glutton for punishment there’s also a short and very steep hill leading to the highest point in Stockley Park, offering amazing views on a clear day.
