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.

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.
