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

The course takes a scenic route through Thornes Park, featuring a couple of slight hills and a mix of terrain. The 10k is a double lap so please look out for signage on the day. The event has an amazing atmosphere; you couldn’t ask for anything better.

Meeting point

The start line is on the field closest to the Horbury Road entrance, opposite the Athletics Stadium.

On the day

Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. There will also be some extra activities and items to buy so please remember to bring some spare change.

Map and directions

Public transport

To prevent congestion, we strongly recommend you use public transport or car share to your Race for Life event.

Please plan your route before your event to ensure you arrive on time. For help planning your route, visit or call:

Parking and travel information

Please arrive at least an hour before the start of your Race for Life event to avoid queuing.

Park and ride from Rishworth Street carpark

The nearest station is Wakefield Westgate and is about a 20 minute walk away from the venue, so we’d recommend walking to Providence Street (near the bus station) and catching a park and ride bus from there.
