The Cheltenham 5K route starts in front of the Grandstand where it runs along the perimeter of Cheltenham’s famous racecourse, crossing the racecourse and looping through the interior before recrossing the racecourse and returning to the event site to the finish.
The route goes along a combination of grass, woodchip, and paved paths.
A picturesque venue in the heart of the Cotswolds and a perfect place to take part in Race for Life.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

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.
