Course information

The Finsbury Park Race for Life takes place mainly on paths and the carriageway within the park. The course includes some areas of grass and some slight inclines and declines.

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

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. You will be able to refill this at the refill station when you finish.

Meeting point

The meeting point is on the grass area alongside Seven Sisters Road, approximately half way between Finsbury Gate and Manor Gate entrances to the park.
