Course information

The start line, finish line and event site are all on hardstanding. The 3K course is an out and back route which is entirely on woodland paths within the forest. There are some slight elevation changes but mainly it is a flat route.It may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on the weather conditions

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.  A Scottish Power water refill station will be available to use at the finish 


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

Update - Due to roadworks and temporary traffic lights in the local area near to Delamere Forest, please allow extra time for your journey. 


Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel.  This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always match up with fitb

Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Race for Life. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.

Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.
Check out the latest range of Race for Life clothing and accessories in our online shop.

Be sun smart
Stay sun safe by finding shade when you’re not on the course and covering up with clothes, a hat and sunglasses. On parts you can’t cover, use sunscreen with at least SPF15 and a 4 or 5 star rating. Find out more about being sun smart.

Your back sign and race number
Remember to bring your back sign and Race number which will be sent to you in the post – don’t forget safety pins so you can attach them to you.
