The Cheltenham route goes around the perimeter of Cheltenham’s famous Racecourse along a combination of grass, woodchip and paths. A picturesque venue in the heart of the Cotswolds and a perfect place to take part in Race for Life.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
The start line is next to the Grandstand buildings.
Free of charge parking is available at the Racecourse.
The nearest train station is Cheltenham and is about an hour's walk away.
For local buses please refer to the Stagecoach website: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/timetables.
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.
Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell. They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run around the course!
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
