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 firstname.lastname@example.org .

We want to make Race for Life as sustainable as possible by reducing our single use plastic consumption, so please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide a water-refill solution that is cost-effective for the charity and environmentally-friendly.
