We would recommend that this event is wheelchair accessible with assistance. The event site is on grass, but wheelchair users can start the course when it goes onto hard standing path near the start if they prefer. The course is mostly flat with the occasional slight incline so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces.
The venue is accessible by wheelchair from most entrances around Greenhead Park, the most suitable entrance for wheelchair users would be the main entrance on Gledholt Road as this is the entrance closest to the event site.
