The historic Victoria Embankment, which is just a stone’s throw away from the city centre, will play host to the Nottingham Race for Life. With its picturesque setting beside the river Trent, participants will enjoy the flat route, perfect for women of all abilities to walk, jog or run.
The start line is within the sports field, just off Wilford Grove, on Victoria Embankment.
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 lots of lovely food.
Head over to the ScottishPower tent – it’s the one with the big inflatable hands! Grab your free pink glove, get your photo taken and you can join the High 5 Wave.
The Pink Lady® gang will be giving out free Pink Lady® apples, and will be offering free WiFi at their tent. So be sure to come and say hello. You can't miss them!

Parking and travel information
Please arrive at least an hour before the start of your Race for Life event to avoid queuing.
Free parking available at venue, on Wilford Grove. Please follow event signage.
We will provide free parking in the sports field on Wilford Grove. Please do not park along Victoria Embankment, as this forms part of the course, and you will not be able to re-move your vehicle until the race is complete. The nearest station is Nottingham, which is a 25 minute walk to the event, so we recommend taxi sharing with friends from the station. There are also many bus routes passing Victoria Embankment.
