I imagine it'll be signposted. It is basically a straight line from the station to the start point.
As you come out the station you should be able to see a Park Plaza hotel. You want to carry up past the side of here, past several banks/bars (Slug and Lettuce, HSBC etc). Carry on up that road and it should be self explanatory from there (it's seriously like a 5 min walk, if that).

Come out of the station by one of the North exits and cross over the road - you'll see a big statue of The Black Prince - guy on a horse. ;) Head towards it.
From there, you'll see a big church. Cross the junction towards it, then turn left and follow Park Row. You'll pass a LloydsTSB on your right, and there's a small Tesco just round the corner if you need any emergency supplies.
Keep following Park Row, passing a Wetherspoons on your left, until you reach Cafe Nero. You'll have reached the Headrow, and should see a ton of signs and stuff there directing you.
Just in case you don't, cross over the road (towards Browns) then turn left and wander down the hill - then you'll have reached your destination!

Just to get you out of the station, as you come through the ticket barriers (and NB they are permanently in use, so have your ticket ready), you can head straight out and then turn left and walk along the side of the station building to the square with the Black Prince on horseback. Or you can turn left inside the station next to the cookie shop (Millie's Cookies I think it is) and then you walk down past Sainsbos on one side and Subway on the other. Keep walking past Bagel Nash and you'll come out and need to head a bit over to the right to see the Black Prince.
Best of luck with the race.
