About the 5k event
The original and most popular Race for Life event, the 5k is an entry-level distance and an achievable first challenge for most. At just over 3 miles it can take about an hour to complete on average, but there's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Walk, jog, run or make your way around the course however suits you to fund life-saving research.

The Caernarfon 5k route is a predominately flat course, therefore we would recommend that this event is suitable for wheelchair users as the course is mainly on tarmac and remains flat throughout. A small section of the course is gravelled, but this area can be avoided if required. If spectating the event site, the start and finish line are all located on a grass field, but there is an area of hardstanding in close proximity. Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly.
