Free family fun zone from 12:30!

Join a free yoga class

Take some time out of your day to unwind at one of the free Vitality yoga classes on offer. We’ll publish a class schedule on the day, then simply come along and join a class on a first-come, first-served basis.

Picnic in the park

And if you’re feeling a bit less energetic (especially after your mile!) bring some food and drink to enjoy at one of the 40 picnic tables that will be dotted around the family fun zone – then just sit back, relax and listen to music and announcements from our resident DJ!

About Hatfield Park

Just 21 miles north of central London in the Hertfordshire countryside, Hatfield Park is part of the 207-acre Hatfield House estate – a haven of peace and calm encompassing pasture, woodland, wildflower meadows and landscaped gardens that are sure to be in full bloom come July!

The house itself is a prime example of Jacobean architecture – it even includes Tudor Old Palace, the childhood home of Elizabeth I, on site. Both Hatfield House and its grounds have also been used as film and TV locations in productions including Netflix’s Bridgerton and The Crown, and films such as The Favourite (2018), All the Money in the World (2017) and Wonder Woman (2017) – so if they look familiar, that’s probably why!

The Vitality Mile at Hatfield House course

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Hatfield Park gives you the chance to take on the mile distance in a safe setting, away from traffic. The Vitality Mile course will be on an asphalt track, making it suitable for pushchairs and buggies, as well as wheelchair users.

Getting to Hatfield Park

By public transport

Hatfield railway station is served by fast trains from London’s Kings Cross (20 minutes) and a stopping service from Moorgate. In the other direction, trains go to Cambridge (fast service) and Welwyn Garden City (stopping service).

Bus routes 301 and 302 to St Albans and Hemel Hempstead and the 724 to St Albans, Watford and Heathrow Airport also stop at Hatfield Station.

When you arrive at Hatfield Station, you’ll see our signs directing you to the main gates opposite the station – we’ll also have marshals standing by to guide you.

By car

If you’d prefer to drive to the event, Hatfield House is seven miles north of the M25 (Junction 23) and two miles east of the A1(M) (Junction 4).

Please ignore the brown Hatfield House tourist signs – instead, look out for Vitality London 10,000 at Hatfield Park traffic signs directing you to your car park.

If you requested a car parking place when you registered for the event, we will email you before the event to let you know which car park you’ve been allocated and how to get there.

We will also provide your allocated arrival time – please stick to this to help us deliver a socially distanced event. Finally, to access your car park, please display your bib number on your dashboard before you arrive.

By bike

Thinking about cycling to the event? While you’re welcome to get to the Hatfield area by bike, please be aware that there won’t be a secure bike park at the event, and the venue does not allow cycling in some areas of its grounds. The good news is there’s a dedicated bike park at the Hatfield Station (which is near the pedestrian entrance to the event), as well as cycle racks in the town centre, so you can secure your bike and complete your journey on foot.
