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.

The course

Set in the grounds of this former colliery, the race starts and finishes on the main field in the shadow of the amazing Penshaw Monument. The route goes around the park, where you can take in the views across the North East as well as the local wildlife. The course is mainly on footpaths with a couple of hills along the way.

Meeting point

The meeting point is adjacent to the park’s cafe.

On the day

As well as the family activities we'll be providing, the park itself offers plenty to do, so bring them all along to support you.
