Course information

The course is largely flat and set in the beautiful, family friendly Cassiobury Park. The course enjoys tree-lined paths and grass avenues with a mixture of terrains.

Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the water refill station when you finish.

Meeting point

The start line is in the main large field, uphill from the splash pools and Daisy's cafe.

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 raceforlife@cancer.org.uk.
