Course information

The Gloucester route goes around the City Centre, passing iconic landmarks such as the Docks, the Cathedral and then back along the city’s streets. The roads are closed for the route which is flat with a combination of grass, roads and pathways.

We kindly ask that you be respectful of other land users in areas such as the Docks and the bridges when passing through.

Please bring your own reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

The start and finish area is in Gloucester park opposite the Band Stand.

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.

There are plenty of car parks around the City Centre. Please be aware there will be road closures in place from 9am so make sure you arrive in good time to access the area.

The nearest train station is in the City Centre and is a 10 minute walk to Gloucester Park.

This event is suitable for wheelchair users but with assistance, due to the grass in the start/finish area. It's worth noting that the grass may become boggy in poor weather conditions.

Please be aware that there is no blue badge parking at Gloucester Park. There are blue badge spaces in Gloucester Quays car park (Southgate Street) which is approximately 600m from the start/finish. 

Supporter / spectator access

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.
