About the 3k event
On the day
You fundraise, we discover
“I’m excited to support Race for Life and play my part to fund research"
While your entry fee covers the cost of your event, it's the money you raise that will fund vital research and see more people surviving cancer.
The start line is in the main large field, uphill from the splash pools and Daisy's cafe.
If using what3words, enter ///monkey.rocky.belong in the free app, to find the exact starting point.
The town centre car parks and Watford underground station are just a short walk away from the park. Buses such as 320, 321 and W1 serve Watford town centre.
The Cassiobury Park car park is not available for event parking and this will be stewarded. There tends to be some congestion in the surrounding roads, so please use town centre car parks and give yourself plenty of time to park up and walk over.
This course has challenging terrain with undulating grass paths and some wild areas with exposed tree roots. It is mainly flat, however there is a large incline at the end of the course in the area between Cassiobury Park car park and Daisy's café. This incline and some of the terrain in the park may not be suitable for some wheelchairs or wheelchair users, so we ask that you make a self-assessment on the suitability of the course for you, based on your knowledge of the park - as it is one of our more challenging routes.
Should you wish to take part in this event with a wheelchair, we strongly recommend that you have assistance.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
