Parking

This course is mainly on the paths of the Cheltenham Racecourse track and is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance. However, the terrain may become boggy in poor weather conditions so shortcuts within the course may be taken that day if the grounds are unsuitable.

There are blue badge holder parking spaces close to Gate 21 (approx. 90 metres from the event site). The start and finish area is on hardstanding, as is the route from the blue badge parking area.
