You and your friends can also take part by volunteering. Our events can't take place without the hundreds of people who give up their time for a few hours to set up the courses and get everyone in the Race for Life mood. Find out more and register to be a volunteer.
Starting and finishing in the area behind Flint Cottage, the 5k and 10k courses are fully contained within Hylands Park. The first 5k is the same for all participants – look out for the 5k/10k split point just before the 5k finish. The terrain is cross-country and on grass.
The meeting point is the open grass area behind Flint Cottage.
On the day
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the many stalls we’ll have, including face painting, merchandise and fitness advice/activities.
