The course

Winding around Lydiard Park, the route takes in views of the house and lake. The course is primarily on pathways with two short sections on mowed grass.

Meeting point

The start line is opposite the car park. Please follow the Race for Life flags and the directions provided by the volunteers.

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, bouncy castle, catering and merchandise.
