There is time limited on-street parking in Smith Street. Please note that Castle Lane and the Stables car parks will be closed.
Please be aware that there are ongoing road works in and around Warwick which will delay you getting to the start.
Health & Safety concerns require that Drivers must not stop and drop off runners at the kerbside on Stratford Road as it causes severe disruption. Drivers must follow the entrance road into the Castle car park to the runners’ drop off and turning location as indicated * on the attached map and then return to the Stratford Road. There is no charge for entering the car park for drop off but if you intend leaving your car then the usual parking charges will apply. Drive slowly as there will be many runners on the entrance roadway.
Owing to the restricted car parking at Warwick Castle, you are advised to use the public car parks located at:
• St Nicholas Park car park,
• The Butts (opposite King’s High School for Girls - see map).
We stress it is important you allow ample time to get into Warwick Castle from your car. It is a 15/20 minute jog from these car parks and another 5 minutes to the start.
GATES OPEN AT 07:30AM – GATES CLOSED AT 08:45AM
