This course is accessible to wheelchair users in dry weather, but due to a sizeable section of the course being on grass and woodland paths, assistance is recommended. 

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

Blue badge parking is available next to the start area.

If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event, or wish to bring a carer/helper to accompany you, please contact our Supporter Hotline on 0300 123 0770 and press 1 when prompted (Opening hours are 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday) or email us at raceforlife@cancer.org.uk
