Welcome to St Albans Verulamium Park

Verulamium Park is set in the grounds opposite St Albans Cathedral. The park itself is largely flat and in the winter is well-lit thanks to the floodlights from the running track. Kit classes are frequently on the timetable to ensure members are challenged and encouraged to reach their limits.
