Delamere Forest’s scenic 5k single lap course features a mixture of terrain such as winding trails, undulating woodland paths, and stone paths that incline and decline through the charming woodland. Delamere offers an invigorating route through its stunning shady oasis. Due to parts of the course being in the forest, it may become slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.
Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event.

The Delamere Forest 5k features undulating woodland pathways, stone paths and areas with a steep incline and decline, so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. We would advise that our 5k course may be unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids and pushchairs due to the woodland terrain.
If spectating, the event site is on hardstanding, but is surrounded by grass and fairly narrow, steep pathways. There is disabled parking available at the new visitor centre for spectators. The visitor centre is surrounded by areas of hardstanding. Please be aware that in bad weather conditions the ground may become boggy and challenging for those with mobility issues.
