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.
This venue has a fantastic atmosphere as the course criss-crosses around the park so you can always see other participants around you. Travelling along grass, park paths and tarmac, this course has an incline for a couple of hundred metres halfway along the course but is otherwise completely flat.
The meeting point is on the opposite side of the internal road from the car park.
On the day
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls we’ll have, including face painting, merchandise, healthy food and sweet treats before cheering you on.
