About Grand Union Canal Autumn Half Marathon

Lovely point-to-point race from Cowley Recreation Ground, Uxbridge along the Grand Union Canal to Cassiobury Park, Watford.

A flat, scenic, unusual, multi-terrain course. Traffic-free apart from one minor road crossing.

As this is a point-to-point race, you can choose to leave your car at the finish and use the bus to get to the start - your car will then be waiting for you when you've finished. You can book and pay for your seat on the bus when you register. Great spectator-friendly start at Cowley Rec & finish in Cassiobury Park!
