Course information

The Carlisle 3k course is predominantly flat all the way round, mostly running on smooth paths and grass, with a short section of woodland trails. You will run around the woodlands and gardens of Bitts Park.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

The start and finish lines are situated on the main playing fields of Bitts Park.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll  be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

The start is approximately a 10 minute walk from the city centre and 15 minutes from Carlisle Train Station. There are a number of bus services that stop just a short walk from Bitts Park. 

There is parking available at the Devonshire Walks Car park, just across the road from the start line in Bitts Park. Please note, this is a pay and display car park.  

Please use the ‘Plan a Journey’ pages of cumbria.gov.uk to plan your journey.

Parking

In dry weather this route is accessible to wheelchair users, but due to the large majority of the course being on grass, assistance is recommended. 

In wet weather a large section of the course will be inaccessible to wheelchair users which will significantly reduce the distance. The grassy start/finish area will also be difficult to access.

Supporter / spectator access

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19.  Please refer to the section ‘ how we are keeping you safe’ https://raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/your-safety for further updates.
