There's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Walk, jog or run or make your way around the course however suits you and help fund life-saving cancer research.

Follow highway signage to Burghley House. Do not use Burghley House Visitors Entrance, head onto London Road where the car park is accessed via the Bottle Lodge Entrance. Stewards will direct you to the event car park which is available within Burghley House and free.
Please avoid parking around the residential areas.
Please leave in plenty of time to avoid queues and car share if possible as this will help cut down congestion.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks
This route takes place mainly on grass and uneven terrain in areas and includes a steep incline. For this reason we’d don’t feel that it is wheelchair accessible, as the ground can become very soft and rutted in damp weather and can be tough going even in drier weather; definitely a cross-country route.
If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event or wish to bring a carer/assistant to accompany you or if you need to bring a guide runner, 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 email@example.com
Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Race for Life. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.
Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.

Be sun smart
Stay sun safe by finding shade when you’re not on the course and covering up with clothes, a hat and sunglasses. On parts you can’t cover, use sunscreen with at least SPF15 and a 4 or 5 star rating. Find out more about being sun smart.
Your back sign and race number
Remember to bring your back sign and Race number which will be sent to you in the post – don’t forget safety pins so you can attach them to you.
